4.33/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

355ml bottle poured into tulip 13/6/13 big cheers towards liamt07 for this little monster

A not quite black with a deep cola edge, I didn't expect much foam but it pumped out a dark short lived two finger foam that leaves no lace, a little color on the glass and some legs running down the side of the glass

S chocolate syrup and smokey bourbon, soy, teryaki beef jerky, booze but I'd never guess its a 18% monster, molasses, some dark fruit and chocolate covered covered raisins, faint licorice and a little more booze

T not as much soy, some faint char, booze is still there but all things considered I'd say its in check, a little more dark fruit and chocolate covered raisins, not a massive barrel presence but it works, sweet but well within my limits

M thick and syrupy with just enough carbonation to keep it from feeling still, I feel the booze in my chest more then my throat, chocolate syrup, faint smokey bourbon and wood lingers quite strong for quite some time

O quite drinkable for such a massive beer, rich, intense and a little intimidating, I only have a sip left in my glass at this point and its one of those brews that will just level you if given the chance, my glass is empty before the booze from the first sip hits my blood, watch out

I'd love to have a bunch of these to age but I'm stoked to get the chance to try it, most beers this big I don't love but this ones an exception. I could see this pairing well with an empty stomach first thing in the morning before important social events, go big or go home!!
