Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all -- it must taste rare!

Viscous, oily black in color. Poured with a thick, creamy, dark beige foam with very good retention. Dark roasted malt aromas with rich dark chocolate and earthy hop notes notes. Full bodied with medium low carbonation. Thick, creamy feel through the middle followed by intense boozy warmth. Intense dark roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors followed by medium hop bitterness. Bitter , dark, burnt malt flavors on the back end that transition to expanding boozy heat that gets prickly near the end. Finished with dark roasted malt and dark chocolate notes and an intense boozy bite that lingers a bit. A unapologetic , intensely malty and boozy brew. Lots of roasty malt and, well, booze. Definitely a sipper.

Black oil Texas tea !!
This stuff is as black and thick as it gets . Hard pour produces a moderate head when colder .
Smell is that of a heavy stout waiting for your lips .
Tastes very similar to Ten Fidy to me without the licorice flavor .
Creamy smooth on the tongue and a sipper for sure at 12 abv

It’s a 16 Oz meal in a can or a great combo with a steak , burger or bbq

Totally love this company now and I’m trying all of their offerings plus the price point is terrific for what you are getting :)
CHEERS !!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Presentation: 16 oz. can with no dates. Served in a Willi Becher glass.

Appearance: It pours pure black, with a creamy, two and a half finger tan head. It stays around for a very long time and then goes down into a thick foam layer until the end and leaves some very good lacing. The head retention is impressive.

Smell: It has some sweet aromas of dates and prunes with hints of coffee and chocolate on the nose as well.

Taste: It has some warm, pleasant notes of dark and milk chocolates, roasted malts and coffee beans. Unfortunately, the high ABV is very present and overpowers some of the taste. This is not a bad trait per se, but the beer would benefit from a lower alcohol presence overall.

Mouthfeel: Extremely thick, creamy and full bodied with medium-high carbonation. It has a syrup-like consistency.

Overall: A great looking and great tasting beer with a rich, creamy texture that ultimately suffers from too much alcohol overwhelming the palate. That's a good problem to have though, and this is still an amazing beer.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: It pours black opaque. It has a dark brown head. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: There are aromas of roast and dark fruit. The dark fruits are most like plums. There are some dark chocolate, coffee, and very low burnt notes.

Taste: There are plenty of roasted flavors and dark fruit elements of plums and some raisons. There is a dark expresso like coffee flavors with low amounts of chocolate.

Feel: The alcohol is quite noticeable, but not hot. It has a full body that is creamy and almost chewy.

Overall, an intense stout with plenty of flavor and alcohol. Some elements are more in the forefront than others, but the combinations are well put together.

(1 pint can, batch #021; purchased in 4pk warm on shelf... poured into a snifter)

L: very dark brown, damn near black liquid; dark brown foam on pour, collapses quickly into med-dark brown thin collar, which itself later nearly all but vanishes

S: dark bitter chocolate, dark molasses, toffee, prune... leathery, vaguely musky undertone; dark sugar character reminiscent of Norwegian stouts... heavy, lumbering stream of booze surging from the depths, bit of black licorice on its tail... overall great potency, quite inviting

T: heavy, densely-layered, densely-packed roasted malts; potent yet smooth almost liqueur-like booze in its wake... black coffee/chocolate syrup aftertaste, with a firm yet not biting roast/hop bitterness lingering, as well as a mild minty note...

F: as the can suggests, a plump, viscous body, though it's not quite chewy, more silky-velvety... very little lasting carbonation; also very little burn - a lovely lazy heat builds

O: outside of its texture and density and relative , nothing really notable about the flavors, malt or yeast (or hop) - it's just a decently-made, but generic, big, intense, boozy stout... a bit similar to, but not an exact copy of a Ten Fidy perhaps... probably give away the other cans

Pours tar black with a tan thick head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma...sweet: plum, a little Carmel. Taste.... magnificently complex: a touch of alcohol up front, followed by dark chocolate, coffee, sweet plum immediately tempered with just enough hoppy bitterness. Even a tad salty. Feel: majestically rich and full-bodied. A Beer you can almost chew. Not a fast thirst-quencher. To be savored, by the fire?

Bomber. From Mikkeller shop. In Teku glass. Reading Intro to Python Ch18, then playing Avernum 4. Lots of chocolate. Alcohol more noticeable than desiderable, making it oversweet, a bit metallic and causing a bit of headache. Thin feel

This is an excellent stout, and I can tell how well balanced and nicely complex it is. However, it is a little bit too much for me. This is a motor oil type of beer. People who like heavy stouts will love it though.

Look: very black, thick, thin mocca colored head

Aroma: toasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee.

Taste: Toasted raisin bread, dark chocolate, and lots of coffee.

Feel: It's full bodied, thick and not easy drinking.
