look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle cellared approx. 1 1/2 years. Poured into a snifter. Thanks to demcorhip for getting this for me, albeit over a year ago!

Pours thick and black as used motor oil with a wisp of tan head and a bubbly ring around the glass. Ridiculously dark. Thin lace clinging to the sides. Heavy duty aromas of burnt sugar, molasses, figs, plums, anise, dark chocolate, espresso, and lots of herbal and acidic hop notes. Wow! incredibly complex aroma, ballsy yet oddly warming, getting close to a 5.

Once this entered my mouth the whole thing just set off an explosion of the taste buds and the alcohol sent it straight to my nose. So much malt in here, but the hops just balance it so well. There's a monstrous amount of both! Bitter chocolate and herbal licorice off the top, then astringent citric hops, coffee beans, vanilla, light brown sugar/molasses. Mouthfeel is so massive, near syrupy but I wouldn't expect anything less from a monster like this. Medium-low carbonation. I will not have a problem finishing this bomber by myself, and I'll be looking for more next time I hit the States.

12oz bottle into a snifter

dark black pour with a creamy brown head. smell of chocolate and roasty malts and quite in your face and big. real rich. taste of burnt bittersweet chocolate and a lot of roasty notes. very true to style and drinkable. body is almost full and carbonation is very on point. its definitely a great beer. recommended.
