Had on tap at Brouwer's during Big Wood. Review from notes.

A: Suge Knight was a nice black color with one finger of tan colored head. Nice retention, rather bubbly on top, with plenty of lacing.

S: Nice roasty malt with some chocolate and coffee. Hints of vanilla too. Rather sweet with a little faint alcohol.

T: Deep flavors of milk and dark chocolate, some faint coffee and roasted malt. A bit of caramel and toffee, slight smoke presence as well.

M: Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks rather smooth, the 14% shows through just a bit, to let you know its there.

O: A really nice IS, Boneyard can obviously make a solid non-hoppy beer.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Black with a mocha head.

Smell - Vanilla and sweet chocolate. Boozy.

Taste - Very sweet. Chocolate and caramel. Some roasted malts comes through in the back end, but the booze kicks in, too.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and boozy.

Overall - I got a large pour of this. I really didn't want to overdo it on imperial stouts, but this was tasty and drank pretty easily for its size.

on tap at the E9 in Tacoma today.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with considerable, pillowy, creamy head and considerable lacing. The nose is attractive as well, as I get considerable milk chocolate, vanilla, light coffee and light licorice. The flavor profile is better still, as I get milk chocolate, cherry vanilla, licorice and light coffee, all on a soft and creamy, fairly sweet, rich frame. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, with a long, creamy and persistent finish. Alcohol is amazingly well integrated into the flavor profile, and it's really hard to believe this is a 14% abv. beer.

Really nice beer... hope to see this again on a regular basis in the NW.

Thanks, Dyan!

Black, as you'd expect. Alcohol is well hidden, especially for the ABV. Big roasted and dark chocolate notes with anise and molasses. A bit of grape and plum. Touch of brown sugar. Bittersweet dark chocolate flavor with roast and molasses. Aggressive but still manageable. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. Big and brash. Not something I'd care to drink again but definitely good for the style. This sort of beer needs to be tamed in a bourbon barrel.
