4.95/5 rDev +9.3%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
2009- 2 months old - A:5 S:5 T:5 M:4.5 D:5
Notes: Needs some time, hops are too strong, however still a five on taste. Body is a little thin.
2008- 5 moths old - A:4.5 S:5 T:5 M:5 D:5
Notes: Head didn't leave a huge amount of lacing, but looked amazing.
A: Dark body that's basically black. Huge perfect whipped looking brown head with great retention and lots of lacing.
S: Strong roasted malts with a molasses sweetness. Strong notes of bourbon and roasted coffee. This is a very strong scented beer with complexity.
T: So much happens on the first sip, it's hard to keep it all strait. Lots of roasted malts with molasses sweetness which is made stronger through the licorice. chocolate kicks in a bit, but is dominated by burnt coffee beans. There's a bit of a hop note, but not too much. I dare say perfection.
M: Note extremely thick, at least compared to Dark Lord or any other big stout, however it's still very full bodied.
D: Wow, for how big of a beer this is it's very drinkable. Usually with big stouts, I find it very hard to take down a bomber. This beer is easily drinkable by the bomber for one person, much more than I can say for anything else I've had of the style.
I honestly believe this beer my be perfect after a year or two aging.
