16.9 ounce bottle, no dating that I could find on the bottle or label. Served in a Great Lakes brewing snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with a couple inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like peaty smoke, burnt/charred malt, coffee and some bittersweet chocolate. The taste is mostly like the aroma, but there's also some molasses, licorice and dark fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this a lot, and I'd buy this again the next time I come across a bottle. It's full of smoky, peaty and burnt/charred flavors, and that's always a plus for me! $11.99 a bottle.

Strong, smoky aroma has notes of molasses, yeast, caramel, coffee and licorice. Pours a rich sable just a whisker above night black with a thick, very persistent tan head that "pillows" as time goes by. Flavor is - superb. Smoky, molasses, roast malt, quality coffee, nutty, woody and caramel flavors battle for the attention of your taste buds. It has a surprisingly strong component of hop bitterness, rather sharp and green-woody, the only weakness in the otherwise outstanding taste. Smooth, firm texture has good fizz and leaves an oily, smoky, lip-smacking finish. OK, how does one say "cheers" in Russian?

Reddish black pour into my SAPP with huge dark tan head. Cherry and prune aromas. Stone fruit, chocolate/caramel flavors and a little alcohol on the exhale. Medium plus mouthfeel with velvety tongue coating. Rich, complex fruit and chocolate malt flavors-very satisfying.

Poured from a bottle into a modified tulip glass.
A - Dark, chalkboard dark with a light dusting of red chalk. A quickly dissipating froth leaves an archipelago of mocha carbonation across the cap. Slight slickness coats the glass throughout,
S - Peaty smoked malts, coffee, cocoa, dark aged fruits kick things off. That lead to the warm rise of alcohol, sometimes masked in a rich bouquet of dark malts, sometimes
straight up. The slow smolder of dark wood, and cigar outer wrap tobacco smoke threads through all the experience.
T - Dark sugars and aged dark fruit, move into smoky, rich fig in 80% Madagascar cocoa.
Lush and complex, As the beer warms, that broad leaf tobacco, starts to be a bit much.
F - Starts slick, full palate coating to begin, then the rolling back of flavors and layers, leave a dry cocoa edge. The body is wonderful.
O - A fine take on a big stout, the smoked parts may be a challenge to some. The ABV is
pretty well blended. Brewed in Belgium, it does have that touch to it.
Quite enjoyable and worth the effort.
Cheers
