On tap at Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph. Pours a jet black ebony hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of chocolate and mocha. Similar overall flavor profile.

Sampled at SAVOR 2017. Rich and delicious and well integrated. Not cloying, despite the sweetness in the scent and taste. Hot finish, so it was better to sip.

this beer is quite literally absurd. i mean, triple mashing an already intense and huge beer like this is awesome, but is wholly unnecessary. on paper, to me anyway, it looks like a novelty, but one drink and i was totally surprised and impressed, singing a much different tune. i couldnt believe how smooth this was, like, its mellow and rich but not sticky, not sugary going down for how strong it is, and really velvety in texture, its actually awesome. the other shocker for me is how well hidden the alcohol is, sure, you know you are drinking a strong imperial stout, but it doesnt taste or smell fusel to me at all, and blind i never would have guessed 17% abv! notes of dark molten chocolate, cigar, and barrel char and whiskey, its an intense palate, but its remarkably well integrated and the beer is far more drinkable and enjoyable than i expected it to be with this absurd recipe and alcohol strength. thats a huge credit to new holland, who has done something really cool with an already awesome beer. i want to know about what yeast they are using and how they are using it to get it this strong, someone enlighten me! dont be afraid of this or think its a gimmick like i did, its awesome.

It was like a less flavorful black tuesday. Dominated by ethanol with maybe even less chocolate, vanilla, oak and bourbon than standard Dragons milk.

12oz bottle dated 1/4/17 so about 8 months on it.

Pours a nearly black opaque color. Slightly brown on the edges of the glass. Almost no head. Thin lacing on the outside.

Smells of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, and bourbon. Pretty great. Definite booze but not overpowering.

Taste is powerful. Lots of bourbon and caramel. Hints of chocolate as well. Unlike the nose, booze overpowers the taste a bit.

Feel is heavy-ish. Low carbonation.

Overall a nice treat. Booze is strong on the palette but that is to be expected at this ABV.
