Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into an Imperial pint glass. My basement fridge set at 45 degrees. Center pour produces massive head so that I can only fill glass half way before head threatens to spill out on counter.
Smells very nice. Dark fruits and chocolate. A little more hops on the nose than I would expect from a stout.
Taste is good, gets better as it warms. Probably should have waited longer before sampling. The hops on the nose are not as prominent on the palate. A little soy sauce comes along for the ride with the chocolate and fruit. Nice.
This has a great thickness to it. This is how a stout should feel.
Overall, did I mention I didn't taste the high alcohol content, it did catch up with me. I would have shared ( the wife prefers lagers). I'll buy this again.

Hand me a beer and I will drink it, but God save me, I do not like stouts. I will drink Belgian Quadrupels, Double or Imperial IPAs, but I do not like stouts. If you are like me and turn your nose up at even a Guinness, do not drink this.
It looks like liquid evil.
It smells like liquid evil.
It tastes like liquid evil.
It feels like liquid evil. Or motor oil.
Two years later and I still have not recovered.
In reality though, it is dark. Hold it up to a light, and it will not show even a shred of a glow. Strong coffee and dark malts are prevalent, both in taste and smell. It feels much like something I should have chewed.
This is a tough brew to get through. I had it on tap in a goblet-style glass, and in small amounts, it is delicious. The flavors all come through to form some kind of potion that nearly convinced me that stouts are the only way to world peace. Then I made the mistake of buying a bomber. I was not ready. I will never be ready. It is powerful, it is pungent, and if you are not prepared, it will destroy you.
