4.08/5 rDev -3.1%
Bottle from Tipples. Pours thick pitch black with a small, late forming creamy dark brown head. Big chocolate covered dark fruit aroma, caramel, some booze, sweet molasses. Flavor is lots of milk chocolate syrup, bitter roast, anise, a small punch of booze. Smooth for the big ABV, thick bodied, low carbonation. Interesting sipper and pretty unique with chocolate covered anise dominating the flavor. Yum.

4.15/5 rDev -1.4%
Bottled 10/31/13, 16%. Pours opaque black with very thin medium brown head - quick fades into a thin ring where it sticks as the level of the beer progresses lower. Smell: molasses, espresso, fig, prune, toasted brown bread, backer's chocolate. Taste: prune, fig, dark-to-burnt caramel, roasted grain, espresso, cherry cola, anise note. Sugary throughout but never cloying and with minimal apparent booze - yikes! Syrupy with low carb. Has a certain weight to it that fits well. Decadent, intense, a sipper that's unfairly easy to drink.

4.2/5 rDev -0.2%
330mL (11.2oz) bottle from Luekens Big Town Beverages (Dunedin, FL). 9.99. Bottled 10/31/13. Served in a Monday Night Brewing snifter.
Pours pitch black with a half finger of deep mocha head that fades quickly. Faint wisps of bubbles remain throughout on both the surface and aroung the edges without leaving any lace.
Smells roasty and sweet with caramel, cocoa, coffee and brown sugar on top of an abundance of roasted malts.
Flavors are similar to the nose but much bolder. Roasty, bittersweet pure dark chocolate, coffee, burnt caramel/ sugar, molasses, brandied dates, faint smoke, soft earthy woodsy notes and a healthy dollop of booze. An intense, flavorful and very much imperial stout.
Heavy body, almost syrupy with light carbonation. Finishes with dark cocoa, light smoke and burnt sugars.
By no means a daily drinker but this was an experience worth having. A worthy acquisition for any fellow fans of big imperial stouts.

Black body, not much of a brown head.
Smells of roasted malts and not much else.
Like the richest melted dark chocolate. More approachable than Tokyo*, the alochol's there but less a hindrance as it gives off the dark fruit note. Hard to really go at this beer, still, robust and delicious.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Tired Hands flute
A- Black with a very small, very dark brown head.
S- Big, espresso, bittersweet chocolate, molasses, some smoke, touch of alcohol, some dark fruits, smells amazing.
T- Espresso/roasted coffee, rich chocolate, some oak, molasses, dark fruits, some pine, touch of alcohol, but nothing that makes me think this is 16% ABV, complex and balanced.
M- Full body, smooth, just enough warmth from the alcohol.
O- A great beer and the 16% is very well hidden. I was on the fence about buying this until on of the beer guys at the store told me that is was amazing and he was right. Worth every penny, I will have to pick up more to see how it ages. Kind of feel like I need to buy Black, Tokyo*, and Dark Horizon since they are the base of this beer and I have not tried them yet.
