250ml bottle poured into tulip 27/7/14

A shes a black one, not much for a edge, noisy head falls quickly leaving no lace, she looks like slow boiling motor oil when still and leaves some color and wide legs after a swirl

S burnt sugar, coffee, chocolate syrup, dates, raisins, faint peat smoke, licorice, molasses, earthy notes, some spice I can't place

T more coffee in the mouth, sweetener included, dark chocolate of all kinds, booze plays a part but I wouldn't guess 16%, some chocolate covered cherries, dark toffee, still plenty going on

M thick, oily on the palate, a little numbing on the tip of the tongue, enough bubbles to cream it up a bit, some heat but in manageable, coffee and smokey earth on the finish

O shes a rich little monster, lots going on and the 16% is hidden fairly well, 250ml is a good size bottle for this one and bigger and I'd need a friend

I completely forgot I had this one hiding in my collection, I would've drank this one months ago if I remembered that I had the thing. Worth a try but a very costly little nip if you were wanting to stock up.

4.04/5  rDev -5.2%

Poured from an 8.5 bottle bottle into an Utopias snifter. Purchased in Attleboro, MA.

Appearance - Pours a deep brown, nearly opaque body with a light mocha head that reduces pretty slowly to leave a ring of foam.

Smell - Dark fruits, coffee, caramel and burnt sugar, some soy, toffee, molasses, some vanilla. The aroma is subdued but complex.

Taste - Initially this is quite sweet.. brown sugar, vanilla, milk chocolate upfront. This transcends to dark fruits, then a super roasty, charred malt, burnt coffee flavor that sticks around for a while.

M- For such a high ABV, this isn't super thick. Lightly carbonated.

I couldn't quite get past the super sweet flavor of this beer. Other than that, pretty complex. Not sure it was worth the price for such a small bottle.
