Ahhh, the elusive Black Note. On tap at the City Tap House. Dark brown with a trace of edgy suds. Nose is dark chocolate, coffee and bourbon. Medium body with a tang and a tingle. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, molasses and vanilla. Bourbon is prominent but well integrated. Dryish finish with maple, licorice and a touch of soy.

Black color. Impressive aroma, with chocolate, Bourbon vanilla, cookies, roasted malt. Strong body, the mouthfeel is quite oily; strong chocolate flavor, sweet, with light vanilla and evident roasted malts too; the final actually has more roasted malts, which I don’t like too much. Strong bitterness. An excellent beer anyway, well balanced.

This is about darn near close to being a perfect beer as I’ve had in a long long time. Had at the Fobab 09. Dark black pour with a gorgeous head of dark tan color. Nose of bourbon, espresso, dark chocolates, alcohol, vanilla all mellowed and rounded so well together. Should have went back for 2nds, 3rd, maybe more. So velvety smooth and utterly fantastic overall. An absolute gem not to be missed if ever available in your area.

Handbottle, courtesy of KimJohansen. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark malty and roasted chocolated flavoured. Smooth and dark malty, chocolate and vanilla flavoured. Lasting dark chocolate and vanilla flavoured. Dry and bitter finish. Nice one.

Hand bottled nip of this with a big thanks due to StFun. Pours a pitch black with little to no head, absolutely no retention or lacing. Aroma no surprise with roasted malt, caramel, bourbon, wood, and some dried fruits. Flavor matches and is extremely smooth and creamy. Very solid, but I would rather have a nicely aged expy. Glad to have a chance at trying this and it’s definitely world class.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Nip hand bottle, courtesy StFun. Thanks Josh! This one pours pitch black with just a small, wispy tan colored head of foam. The aroma shows notes of rich decadent chocolate and fudge, anise, and espresso roast. Toasted caramel and oak shine through with a nice whiskey note, but is balanced by some lactic cream. The expedition and double cream stouts both show their strengths in the aroma. The flavor mimics the nose with the bittersweet chocolate, fudge, and espresso roast up front followed by smooth whiskey and vanilla laden oak. The whiskey and vanilla cream ties everything together forming a decadent elixir. Full bodied with just a hint of carbonation almost flat, with a nice warming finish from the whiskey. I would love to try this one fresh with some carbonation. Just a very rich and decadent stout. Awesome stuff.

Bottle @ Papsø. Thanks Kim. Pours black with a small bubbly brown head. Nose is deep and vinous. Extremely complex. Hard roast, oak, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Low carbonation. Very smooth and full bodied. Taste is sweet and roasted. Quite rough with a lot of oakyness, alcohol and some hops in the end.
