Pours a dark brown but sits in the glass as a imperal stout. Has thick pancake-like batter qualities. Lacing is thick and phenomonal, as it coats the whole glass and sticks around...exceptional.
Smells are so so complex. ..Another "5"
Up front are Sweet toasty malts, peppery spices, and some hops. Choclolaty as well.
As I swirl the mysterious brew, I get waifs of roses and herbs. A very bready smell and some wood charachterics...oak.
Where is the alcohol 10% abv?
In the taste department, I would compare this brew mostly to Stone Russian Imperial Stout. But not as thick in the mouthfeel as Stone. This tastes incredible.
Has a nice hop profile. Almost ruins the tounge like a IPA. Very very sweet malts that are sooo roasty and toasty. As the hop bitterness are almost borderline OUT TO SPACE, so is the malt sweetness. This beer is HUGE HUGE HUGE. With the sips, alcohol is present like a barlywine. What is this beer? I would label it a Imperial stout. But without the coffie and expresso many have.
The mouthfeel is thick and the sugars coat everything. I am surprised my teeth are not coated black. I wish this was a bit more creamy and smooth. Still is creamy and smooth but could be a little more. I think the Hops take away the mouthfeel and drinkability one half notch.
This is a HUGE beer. Incredible profiles!!! People always talk of Dark Lord and Westies....I think this is up there in that class.
A bit expensive...but we only live once!

Split a 500 ml bottle Nov.30th
A: looked pretty good Nice Brownish Deep Amber colour, Tan'Offwhite head
S: Subtle, faint notes of caramel and chocolate trying to make their presence known
T: Oxidized full on Cardboard bomb. Lingered over powered even the booze.
M: Slightly thinner than i hoped and the faint carbonation didnt help.
O: Not what i was expecting i checked the bottle best before stamp it had two numbers on it 2 years apart should of been in the clear. might need another look if a new shipment comes in
