4.43/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

eyes...
pours like motor oil, you can see bubbles conforming in spires in the bottom of the glass circled round the edges, dark brown foam that audibly sizzles and minds its manners right quick, the foam retreats into the deep dark depth slinking backwards into a miniscule o-ring of shame, she has legs and well you know the ZZ top song so why should I have to type that here? maybe I'm crazy but this just felt heavy pouring it into the glass, a nice dementedly dark den of decadence to be done here.

nose...
licorice and prunes, dark cocoa nibs, some smoke, I am oddly enough getting some notes of wood - dank wood, you know sort of musty-ish with the of scent of actual mold, the alcohol peeks through just a hair letting you know this is some party you have paid the cover charge for. nice smelling, strong chocolate (bitter) and some definite molasses going on (I'm not going to pretend that I know what Muscavado sugar is, sure, I could google it - I here that is what the kids are doing today).

taste etc...
I don't remember jesus being this thick... almost chalky cocoa flavor with really heightened bitter notes piercing the back quarters of my mouth, full on ABV kick to the groin but you don't necessarily taste it (yay jesus!), silky smooth in the mouth and it bears weight as well, a really full mouth going on here, like a chocolate bar dipped in molasses, this almost reminds me of some dark rums out of the Caribbean except no alcohol flavor, sure there is big sweetness here but the bitter and chocolate flavors completely balance out this one mother of a beast, this has great bitterness without hops screwing up the chocolate/roast flavors... damn this is tasty.

verdict?
This is the Black Jesus ! I knew the guy could turn water into wine but damn this is more impressive. This is buddy christ of beers, he instantly cheers you up. This beer is fantastic, a must have, a can not miss, a trade your sister for. this belongs among the great imp stouts I have had... I will clearly be seeking more next time I am up in upstate NY (found this @ oliver's in albany)

Got this one at the De Molen beer shop. Cheers PP!

From a bomber into a snifter
Brewed at Westbrook

APPEARANCE: A thick, sludgy black pour yields a 1+ finger, medium looking, foamy, crackly, mocha colored head with good retention. Pitch black body with a piss ton of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a thick, dense cap but continues to snap and crackle. Swirly wisp and ring remain leaving dots of lacing down the glass. Really thick and black, but too carbonated and the head is a little obnoxious.

SMELL: Smells like a gem. Roasted grains, molasses, roasted espresso beans and dark baker's chocolate. Toffee notes as well. Lots of roast, chocolate and molasses. Big nose and just my style.

TASTE: Roasted flavors and sweet molasses initially, lots of it, with some alcohol and sweet toffee up front. Very roasted. Huge flavors on the swallow with more roasted grain, burnt espresso beans, dark, bitter chocolate, with sweet molasses, toffee, and a burst of booze at the finish. Bitter-sweet finish lingers and lingers, with lots of roasted flavors to boot. A touch boozier than hoped perhaps, but this is extremely flavorful with all the ingredients I love in an imperial stout. Fantastic.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium levels of carbonation. Enough weight on the palate, very creamy and oily, slick and silky, goes down smooth and silky with a slight burn at the swallow and finishes very sticky. A touch cloying perhaps, but not at all off-putting. Fits the flavor profile well. Some heat lingers. Great.

OVERALL: Credit it due where credit it due. Whether Jeppe was alone on this one, this brew is absolutely wonderful. Really big, roasted and sweet, much reminding me of CCB's Zhukov, with a good deal of bitter flavors to balance it out perfectly. Solid, full, creamy feel too, which supports the whole show. Perhaps a touch too boozy, but this is a minor complaint. An imperial stout that ticks almost all the major aspects for me flavor-wise, and comes dam close in all the other categories as well. Well worth checking out if you get the chance, and I wish I could buy more of this stuff. Highly, highly recommended.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store and brought to share with my girlfriend's family Christmas eve. Fitting, right?

Pours a deep, dark, jet black, with a half inch mocha head, and a little bit of lacing. Looks kind of oily.

Smells like rich chocolate, some smoke, and a bit of coffee.

The taste is similar. This is a very "hot" stout, in that the booze kind of takes over at points. There's some great flavors- lots of chocolate, a bit of licorice, a good amount of dark fruits- cherries, raisins, plums, etc, but it's all a bit tempered by the fact this beer can't hide it's alcohol all that well. Maybe it will improve with age.

Thick, syrupy, viscous body, almost a little too much. Coats your mouth supremely, so sticky. Low carbonation, barely any.

This has some great flavors, but some technical issues due to the overly syrupy sweet body, and the hot booze temperament.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: dead black and dense; produced little more than a sliver of a collar with a center-pour into a snifter. Dark matter.

S: roasted bittersweet chocolate malts, with associated aromas of boozed chocolate syrup and coffee

T: on-point with nose: rich chocolates, bittersweet and coating, burnt coffee and toast-points

M: slick, dense silk, full-bodied and smooth; teensy bit of alcohol sting (this was a fresh bottle)

O: perfect presentation of a stout, recommended, but does not eclipse any of my top tier double stouts.
