16 oz. can.
17.2 % abv.
Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch tan head over a near black body with nice lacing. Nose of cocoa, malted milk, milk chocolate, and a bit of dark fruit as well. Wonderfully rich flavors of all kinds of chocolate (milk, dark, bittersweet), dark fruit (black cherry), and booze. Wow, this doesn't taste like 17.2%, but close. ;) Nice feel, akin to chocolate syrup. Overall, an awfully good example of going over the top with fantastic results. Damn, what a true pleasure! Go out and track this down! Cheers!!!

Thick and syrupy, with serious legs. 17%+ ABV has never been smoother. The third iteration of Big Ass Money Stout is very similar to the second, higher-volume but a little less complex, with plenty of chocolate malt, floral hops, vanilla, brandy, and port grapes.

Beer Manager handed me one of these as a gift the other day .
I figured that tonight with the World Series beginning that it might be time to pop it :slight_smile:
I would have liked to cellar it, but he wanted my opinion .

HOLY SHEET BROTHERS !!

This is maybe the richest and delicious stouts that I’ve ever had .
Absolutely amazing sipper and at 17.4 abv it is a perfect choice ..
Beautiful dark thick syrupy pour with barely any head .
Smells like fudge .
Tastes like dessert and sticks to your tongue .

An absolute Grand Slam .
Must get some more :slight_smile:
cheers !!

3.78/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Date: Canned on 02/22/18, consumed on 09/22/18.

Appearance: Has there ever been a beer this dark, I wonder? It features an almost fizzy dark brown head that disappears quickly.

Aroma: Big fudge like maltiness, like rich liquid dark chocolate, a bit of dark fruits, and some coffee. It actually reminds me of a Prairie stout, just less sweet.

Taste: I was way wrong, Big Ass Money Stout 3 is every bit as sweet as a Prairie stout. Sweetened dark chocolate, that is quickly followed by a somewhat bitter coffee and burnt malt roast, which is in turn followed by a small amount of alcohol warmth. Other than the aforementioned small warming sensation one gets, there is no hint this beer is over 17%, as it could easily pass for 10%. Unfortunately, the bitter roast and black coffee elements simply cannot keep up with the massive sweetness, as a creamy sweet vanilla lactose element is never far away. As Big Ass Money Stout begins to warm, a marshmallow flavor appears. Also, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your preference, I get no real indication of either pizza or money. This is another well made beer from Evil Twin, but it is just too sweet for me. If you enjoy Prairie beers, then this would surely be right up your alley and for $10 or $12 you get 16oz rather than the standard 12oz.

Fun beer, but can't taste anything "strange". A bit like some of the weird stuff from Omnipollo. Pretty good for a mega stout, but doesn't stand up to some.of the other great 15+ABV stouts in the taste department.

Tan head, dark tan. Motor oil thick. Black.

Rich and thick. Fudge and chocolate. The pizza must add something but I wouldn’t be able to tell that’s what it is. Roasted malts with some coffee notes. Caramel. Some hop bitterness. This is a big beer.

16 ounce can. 02/22/18 stamped on the bottom of the can, I'm assuming it's the canning date. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. The head didn't stick around for long, and there's not much lacing either. The brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, earthiness, booze, dark fruit and dark chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, with chocolate fudge, roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, cream, earthy and a bit of smoke flavor noticeable. It was sweeter tasting than I expected, and it also wasn't as boozy tasting as I thought it would be. With that being said, you still know you're drinking a strong beer! Mouthfeel/body is full, it's thick and slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was pretty good, definitely worth a try.

From can and poured from fridge temp. Pours a muddy and creamy black. Very rich looking. Quickly dissipating brown head. Nose is huge roasted malts. Coffee grounds, tobacco, licorice, and some chocolate. Definitely getting smoke. Taste is super rich. Sweet and a bit burnt and smokey. A bitter aftertaste. Oily and chewing tobacco tastes. Coffee grounds. The sweetness is almost a bit syrupy. Mouthfeel is super viscous and thick. Chewy. Overall, a great stout with immense flavors. Drinking an entire can at 17.2% is tough.

Black color with tan head, aroma of chocolate, coffee, cherries, maple syrup, medium/heavy sweetness, full body, oily feel, ABV very well hidden, one of the best beers I've ever had.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Description: Inky black pour with a smooth, shiny appearance. Almost looked like glass. There's a just a little bit of khaki head. Smell is coffee, tobacco and leather. I was expecting more here. I could smell it when I poured it, which is usually a good sign, but when I dug my nose in it didn't really amplify or improve it. Taste is BIG, with roasty, sweet, creamy notes complemented by dark fruit and dark chocolate. Towards the end of the beer, it kind of felt like the roastiness was taking over, maybe even a little too much. It almost tasted overly roasted or burnt. The alcohol, as you'd probably imagine, was apparent but not overwhelming given the ABV. Feel was everything you want in a stout: smooth, velvety, creamy, heavy and low carbonation.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely drink it again) This was really nice and reminded me of No Rules, but just not quite as good. The overly roasted flavor started to get to me by the end and it became less enjoyable as I drank it. It might be a candidate to lay down and let it mellow for a while. It probably goes without saying, but this is a sipper, dessert type beer.
