Motor oil black appearance.
Thick,creamy feel, slightly oily body.
Aroma is a strong hit of malt,molasses, spice,vanilla, and some high quality espresso.
Taste is almost perfectly identical to aroma,sweet but not overly sugary.
Overall an excellent dessert beer and late night sipper.

On tap.
Version brewed in Holland, at the new Brouwerij De Molen brewery.
Just tapped the nose immediately scent of dark chocolate, toasted notes and caramel.
Soft beige foam that accompanies the first part of the drink.
In the mouth very dense body in which hints of dark chocolate, dried fruit (hazelnuts, almonds), a sweet but not overbearing note of molasses emerge and a taste reminiscent of peanut butter.
Alcoholic note well hidden, but which is still present.
Quite dry finish (despite everything), even if the sweeter notes remain on the palate (of chocolate and hazelnuts), while on the more notes of dark chocolate, therefore more bitter to counterbalance and balance everything.
Complex beer, warm and full, but well balanced.

Shared 330 ml bottle, ABV is 10%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Very nice roasty and malty aroma, with notes of chocolate, coffee, liquorice and dark dried fruits. The flavour has plenty of coffee on a background of medium sweet malts, some fruity hints too.

I bought this two years ago in Lake Geneva. Left one at the condo we were staying at and found it a year later. Was great with a cigar by the lake. Having my last one tonight, on Christmas Eve (technically it’s Christmas Day, but still...)

Typical appearance for a stout, not much head or lacing. Sweet and dark roasty malt smells. Taste is dark malt, roasty, dark fruit, slightly smoky. Pretty layered. Slightly medium bodied, a bit thin, definitely boozy.

Pretty good, and a great Christmas Eve nightcap.

Another heavy abv and strangely named brew from the rebels at Evil Twin. Nose is heavy on dark fruit and baker's choclate. The flavor is suitably complex with a thick, dripy texture. Espresso, burnt ends, leather, grapeskin, molasses and wood/earth notes ae all detectable. Balancing hops are present but under the radar.

Not an everyday drinking beer but a great snifter or nightcap.
