me and beers like this have an interesting relationhip. this one gets a pass but i have to forget i paid 7.50 for it. poured black with a thin dark tannish head. pretty standard stout look. nose is less chocolatey than i expected, which was nice, with hints of other sweet things and vanilla coming in with some earthy notes that kept some things mellowed. flavor was fairly sweet chocolate and fudge mixture with a smack of heat that flowed into some earthiness and more fudge. never really packed the punch i expected flavor wise, but was still rich and tasty. quite a bit of heat but still really drinkable. not bad for what is usually a love em or hate em thing. halfway through i dumped ice cream in

8100th review! 12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 1/31/2019. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, cream, frosting, marshmallow, fudge, brownie batter, toasted biscuit, and dark/brown bread; with light notes of coffee, roasted nuts, molasses, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. A touch too fruity/yeasty aromas, but not overwhelming. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malts, brownies, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, cream, frosting, marshmallow, fudge, brownie batter, toasted biscuit, and dark/brown bread; with light notes of coffee, roasted nuts, molasses, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, roasted bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, cream, frosting, marshmallow, fudge, brownie batter, toasted biscuit, dark/brown bread, roasted nuts, light coffee/molasses/dark fruit, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, brownies, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a solid hop/roast bitter/sweet balance, and no cloying sweetness on the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/bready, and slightly slick/sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal lingering warmth of 11% after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic imperial pastry stout! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, brownies, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; dangerously smooth and easy to drink for the bit ABV, with the minimally bitter/roasted/drying finish. Amazingly soft feel. Amazing balance of super rich malts, and brownie flavorings; with just enough earthy hops to balance sweetness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing dessert style stout example. Tastes exactly like brownies as a beer.

Pours black with a finger of caramel foam. Head retention is okay. Aroma is roasty, toasty, nutty, earthy malts with hearty brownie batter and caramel. It smells thick and full with a notable dessert quality. Flavor profile is roasty, toasty, nutty, earthy malts with a thick brownie batter mix over the top. It's slightly sweet, balancing out the initial bitter malts. Mouth feel is thick and full with a very modest creaminess. Overall, dense beer with some dessert qualities that balance and mesh well with the beer overall.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 12oz bottle.

The beer is black with a one inch tan head that recedes quickly.
Big time chocolate aroma with a little vanilla.
It tastes like a brownie steeped in alcohol. Sweet chocolate first, then a little more bittersweet.
Not as heavy as I expected. The sweetness makes me glad I'm only drinking one bottle.

Served in a red wine glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Thick black to brown body with a dark tan head rising roughly almost one fingers length dropping a touch before my first sip.

Smell: light chocolate coffee aroma which smells good but lack potency.

Taste: Sweet chocolate with a touch of coffee bean and a light caramel note to go with it.

Mouth: Sticky body with medium carbonation and full body. Sweet finish, little overwhelming.

Overall: Good brew, but there's much room for improvement. A touch borderline milk sweet Stout, definitely a grab though. Don't knock it. Salud!

Nearly black, slowly forms a fine, milk chocolate head with a minute or 2 retention.
Focused aroma of chocolate ice cream, very pure chocolate, not bitter; vanilla.
Loads of cocoa on the palate, fresh and pure and rich, and only a touch of bitterness; the chocolate cake taste builds to the finish and lingers; a creaminess persists, like a milkshake; whispers of alcohol heat; velvety smooth feel, low carbonation, full body; fair amount of residual sugar is at risk of outweighing the chocolate.

Awesome fudge-y flavour that lives up to its name, though wouldn't mind more carbonation, and heat, to balance sweetness.
