Reviewing a year old aged bottle
Pours a half inch dark chocolate head, body is pitch black in color. Head retention and lacing were above average.
Smell is of sweet port wine, chocolate, and roasted coffee beans. Smell of alcohol is slightly present and malt is abit smoky. Hops arent apparent at all.
Taste is of sweet chocolate syrup, slight soy sauce too. Burnt malts and roasted espresso mixed with some port wine balance the beer out. Hops arent present and alcohol cuts some of the sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied but is lighter than it looks. Head dissipated rather quickly unfortunately, beer was well carbonated.
Overall this beer was a good imperial stout. Nothing in the top ten of its style but a solid brew nonetheless. Would drink again if available to me.

On tap at the Whip In in Austin.
The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a small tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt, with a little bit of leather and a few assorted spices mixed in.
The flavor is similar. The chocolate and roasted malt notes are very strong and dominate the initial flavor. As the beer warms up a bit, I start to get a little bit of Belgian yeast and a little bit of brett mixed in to the flavor. There is also a little bit of anise and pepper mixed in.
Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Thanks for opening this with me, Nathan!
Black throughout with a moderately sized dark brown head that eventually leaves the glass oily and spotted with lace.
Lots of roast and chocolate elements in the aroma, along with a hint of smoke. I don't pick up any particularly "farmhouse-like" elements.
The flavor too is bold and flavorful: roast, dark and bittersweet chocolate, and a bit of smoke.
Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly chewy.
I like this quite a bit.

A: Pours Blacker then the blackest black times infinity. A dryed blood color finger of head.
S: smells of BLACK Coffee and Rotting Farmhouse yeast! and some boozyness...
T: hell fire roasted Cocoa, slight festering malts and yeast and vanilla bean tears ov dying angels
M: thick as blood with a generous amount ov carbonation
This brew was defiantly spawned from the darkest pits ov hell to pay homage to Black Metal and SATAN! \m/
