750ml bottle from FreeBridge.

After the geyser adventure on the Fourth with Night to End All Dawns, I learned. I cut the cage off this bottle in the sink, and was ready when the cork popped and hit me in the chest. Lost only a few sips to the sink, and poured out the first cup of foam into a tulip.

The body is perfectly black, capped by three fingers of medium tan dense foam.

Aroma is dark fruits and licorice. Some candy sugar in the background.

Taste follows the aroma. Dark fruits. Licorice. Candy sugar. Then some Belgian chocolate. Deep roast coffee. Warming alcohol in the belly.

Rich slick smooth as silk mouthfeel.

Another terrific beer from Kane. Now if they could just fix things so I decided when the corks came out of their bottles.

Thanks to dfclav for sending me this in a big random box of goodies for another essentially. Shared with rudzud and others.

Decent fizzy head rises quickly and fades quickly, just about pitch black beer.

Nose had a slight infection sour or possibly just a very acrid roast mineral character, then dark malts, some roast and super dark malts, bit of roast, char, faint hint of bourbon barrel.

Taste starts rich with dark malts, little creamy, light choc and roast, fluffy, earthy char, bitter roast and light barrel char, hint of bourbon barrel, super dark choc and creamy choc. Some Belgian dark stout flavours too. Finish is sticky sweet and syrupy, light booze and bitter dark choc lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, nice carb, hint of booze.

Overall not bad, but not super special, nice dark malts and Belgian dark malts, faint barrel notes, interesting beer

Reviewed from notes taken on 12/8/2012.

Not quite pitch black, capped by a billowy tan head. Some sticky lacing. This has the best visual characteristics of both a quad and an imperial stout going for it. Aroma shows notes of quad and imperial stout but they never truly meld harmoniously. Chocolate maltiness abruptly interrupted by fruit note that's like white grape. Surprisingly estery.

A lot going on in the flavor department. More like a quad upfront - sugary, dark fruit. Then more like an imp stout - rich malt profile, roasted grain. Good sweet / bitter balance, could actually be sweeter. Carbonation is too fizzy, harsh. Champagne yeast is not a good fit for the style.

This beer had a lot of potential but the harsh texture was a major knock against it. It seems plenty of others on BA felt the same.
