Exxon Valdez got nothin on this beast. Rumor has it this beer was influenced by the blob from "The Raft" on Creepshow 2.

Dec 2013 bottle opened in Mar 2015

Appearance – Pours a pitch black color with a nice creamy brown head and a medium lacing.

Smell – Heavy malt, molasses, anice, barley, and a hint of espresso. Very Nice! There is also some raisin notes.

Taste – Similar to the smell, but better! A perfect mix of malt, anice, and espresso, with vanilla. Very tasty!

Mouthfeel – Creamy, nicely carbonated, velvety, and smooth. The bottle says this is 15.4%abv, but it feels like only 12%. Very nice!

Drinkability – Very easy drinking, especially for 15.4%.

This beer is big and boozy. Subtle winter spices on the nose, drinks very hot.
