Picked this up from a great trade with Mike! Pitch black pour with two finger caramel-colored head that quickly faded leaving nice lacing. Unique roasty nose with a strong vinous character along with hints of espresso, licorice, cocoa, dark fruits, toffee, and some subtle smoke. The taste is earthy and vinous and pretty much mirrors the nose. Hints of cocoa, grapes, espresso, licorice, dark chocolate, black pepper, dark fruits, leather, tobacco, port wine, and smoke. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, velvety smooth, subtly creamy, incredibly drinkable for the ABV, and continues the vinous theme. Overall, a very nice surprise. Unique and crazy drinkable! Highly recommended!

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a dark tan head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of Belgian yeast and dark fruits are present in the nose along with notes of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the chocolate and roasted malt flavors are a little stronger. Little, if any alcohol or bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting stout that seems to exhibit properties of a stout and a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. The masking of the alcohol makes this very drinkable.

I've seen dark brown almost to the point of black but this is freakin black as a no moon midnight. Extremely rich dark brown layered mahogany dense head. Tis a thing of beauty.

Aromas of sweet cream, malty, cocoa powder, hops and a candy store.

Big on character, vanilla, dark/bakers chocolate, bitter hop and coffee roast.

Heavier body and clean finish. I enjoyed this better at cooler temps.

Magnificent depth and character needs to be repeated. At $7.49 a 1 pint 9 ounce bottle and 11abv, this is a no brainer-ALL DAY LONG! Goodnight Irene.

750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 6/21/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, raisin, plum, coffee, light char, toast, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, raisin, plum, dark bread, coffee, toast, clove, pepper, herbal, and roasted/yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, raisin, prune, light coffee, dark bread, toast, light pepper, clove, and roasted/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great Belgian Imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and moderate fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
