has almost about a year of age on it (about two months shy) lets see how this goes.

Scent is huge from the minute i uncorked this thing. Pours out black and thick with a thin lace of coffee head. Also has some ghoulish red highlights to it. Lots of coffee clove and candied belgium sugars on the nose.

This beer is still, eerily still...

I'm kind of afraid to sip, afraid I might not be ready....

alright lets go!

Now before i took a sip I took another whiff, a lot of sweet chocolate took over the nose on the beer warming.

A dark rum sweetness up front with chocolate covered raspberries somewhere in the middle. Finishes with a chocolate covered raisin flavor along with a slightly boozy after taste. Definitely a gigantic beer, the name of the beer is quite hilarious actually (and gets even funnier as you get closer to finishing the 750ml)

Tons of flavors, Belgian beet sugars, sweet chocolate, raisins, raspberries, licorice, spiced rum. They're kind of all over the place but I think i might like it?

Huge syrupy body. Super creamy. The sweetness is balanced very well with the belgian yeast strains and alcohol.

This beer is mysterious as it's name and yet ironically as big as it's name. I feel like this beer could benefit from aging very long periods of time. Quite the mysterious brew.

Wow, this thing packs a punch.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

A - Thinner looking black beer with a pale white billowy head. Head dissipates quickly but sticks around.

S - I get strong roastiness, with some dark fruit. Not getting the typical banana I get in belgians.

T - Roast hits first, maybe some chocolate. Didn't get the dark fruit that I smelled. Then it hits, sickly sweet candy sugar. Overpowering.

M - Whoa, this is one chewy thick beer. Makes sense, plenty of residual sugars coming through.

O - Not a fan of this one, the sweetness just killed this beer for me.

From tasting notes 10-10-11
Poured into a snifter

Appearance: Pitch black pour that I can tell by the way it pours that this is a very thick, viscous beer. There is a tall rich and dense brown head that settles somewhat slowly and eventually dissipates with virtually no head retention and leaves very little lace behind.

Smell: Dark fruits are prominent--especially prune and raisin--along with a dark roasty malt aroma and a fair bit of alcohol on the nose. If I inhale too vigorously, the alcohol is a bit much for me. There is also a hint of coffee.

Taste: Very sweet (almost to the point of being cloying, but not quite. After about half a bottle I adjusted to the sweetness and it was not a big deal). I taste a host of flavors including prune, raisin, more robust dark fruits, a hint coffee, roasted malt, caramelized bananas, and lots of alcohol, especially in the finish. The aftertaste is of roasted malt and dark fruits.

Mouthfeel: Rich and thick feel, and medium to full bodied. This beer is highly carbonated with a fizzy finish that helps mask the alcohol to a small extent.

Overall: I really liked this beer more and more as it warmed and as I drank more. It has a lot of great qualities, although it is fairly boozy. I love the host of dark fruits flavors and aromas, it really makes this beer a good one. And at $7.49 for a belgian style IS, at 11.8%, 750ml, the price is quite reasonable.
