The beer pours a deep, dark black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is outstanding. It has a warm, rich roasted malt scent that boasts of earthy black malts and non malted roasted barley. There is a good deal of chocolate malt as well. It's complex with a significant alcohol presence. The taste is great. It has a damn fine earthy, roasted character. It goes down slow and easy with a rich chocolatey finish. The mouthfeel is good. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a terrific stout. It's incredibly complex; a good slow drinker.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a big ass bottle in to a Duvel tulip.

A- This looks like straight Hershey's syrup which erupts in to a big luscious dark brown head if poured quickly enough.

S- The smell is magical. Barrel up front, chocolate and coffee following. Rich, rich, rich.

T- As with an big stout, the flavor really comes alive as it warms. Cocoa, licorice, and coffee grounds, followed by the slightest alcohol burn. As I keep sipping, dark fruits become very apparent and mildly tart.

M- Huge full feel and medium-light carbonation.

O- I'm a big fan of this beer. Glad I finally gave it a go.

3.8/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of and shared with beastmaster. Pours pitch black with a massive creamy dark brown head. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, smokey roast, anise/black licorice, some strong chocolate coming through, char maybe from barrels. Smells pretty rich. Flavor is sweet and smokey molasses, chocolate, oak, booze, raisins. Medium plus plus body, medium to low carbonation, and very smooth. Warming. Very sticky here. Sort of like smoked chocolate covered licorice sticks. Jury is still out but a nice dessert in small quantities. Drinkability on the low side but overall nice.
