From a 22oz bottle, undated. Served in a tulip.

Pours an impenetrable mahogany-black with big carbonation bubbles clinging to the sides. A finger-plus of thick cafe au lait colored head lasts about five minutes leaving a nice mocha ring and slippery sheets of lacing.

Smells nutty, with ice coffee, dark maltiness, cherries and a little coppery-something.

Tastes of Mister Goodbars and prunes, dried cherries, raspberries, sunflower seeds and tobacco. Nutty, understated roasted grains play a minor supporting role. Finishes with sweet-tarts, a little more raspberry and some coffee grounds.

Mouthfeel is medium-thick and slick, well carbonated, sweet-but-not-syrupy. The merest suggestion of alcohol fumes in the sinuses.

Overall, a nice impy that drinks like a much smaller beer. Perhaps a little sweet for my tastes but I can't fault the beer for that. A very well crafted beverage.

5 oz sample on cask. Fair amount of bitter roastiness but not in an entirely pleasing way. Good amount of smokiness as well. Not bad but not nearly as tasty as I was hoping for.

The best use I found for this beer was adding it to a sample pour I had of The Bruery's Or Xata, which I like to begin with, but which was even better (not as overly sweet) after being cut with Undead Party Crasher.

On-tap 9/11/2016 at Natty Greene’s Tavern in North Attleboro, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep black color, with a thin beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of chocolate, dark fruit, licorice and coffee. Then a hearty roasted malt character comes in along with some smokiness. The hops presence is very mild as expected but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice big stout to drink for a long time.

Lots of dark chocolate and cherries. Maybe even a little bit of an hour. Click on the tongue which bill goes down nice. Lots of chocolate as well. Sourness a definite slipper
