Comprata in bottiglia a lo sfuso di Torino. Imperial porter con sentori di cognac. Barricata. Ma gusto poco persistente e un po troppo dolce.

Kolsvart med stort brunt skum. Doftar choklad, kaffe och fatlagring. Smaken är ganska söt med choklad och fat. Lite tunn men annars riktigt bra!

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
375ml bottle. Black pour. Big brown head. Aroma has lots of barrel influence with wood and red grape notes, and there’s a strong coffee bean maltiness. Taste has a dry, chalky, roasty, liquorice vibe but also some sweet fruitiness. Good stuff but not really an improvement on the original in my view.

Bottle. Tasted two years ago. Very good beer, nice oaky and cognac notes, plus all the great stuff from regular black ball.

Lovely stuff. Thick, creamy, roasty and bitter like the regular Black Ball, with a hint of wood and cognac from the barrel aging. Delicious.

Butelka 0.375L.
Wygląd: Czarne z bujną beżową pianą.
Aromat: Intensywny aromat kokosa, lekka wanilia a w tle jak piwo podstawowe ale beczka dominuje aromat.
Odczucie: Wyżej wysycone i nie tak gładkie jak wersja podstawowa.
Smak: Palone, kokosowe, czekoladowe, alkoholowe, trochę bardziej ostre niż nieleżakowana wersja.
Całość: Bardzo dobra ale chyba gorsze niż wersja podstawowa. Piwo zyskało aromaty beczki ale też jest mniej ułożone.

Bottled 375ml. -from Za Popen’t Ljubljana. Deep black coloured, medium sized brown head, cocoa and chocolate in the nose. Roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate with some notes of cognac barrel. No trace of alcohol. Also notes of chocolate and wood in the finish. Superb brew.

Courtesy of and shared with Hrabren, huge thanks! Small brownish tan head, OK retention. Pitch black body. Whoa... cocoa assault with some raisin undertones in the aroma, chocolate-covered cereal, but the barrel(s?) aren’t extremely evident, which is great, because the aroma is quite awesome. Creamy, fresh. Taste...ooooh.... again, dark chocolate owns this lovely, lovely brew. Sherry and cognac? Wouldn’t be able to tell. Nevertheless, this is insanely good. Silky, smooth, never overbearing, with the dark chocolate flowing seamlessly into a bitterish finish. Not bursting with complexity but wow... WOW! Maybe, maybe trace of citric tartness, subdued herbal notes woven perfectly into the silky, smooth, roasty bitter chocolate. Had 5 To Øl beers - all were from very good to fucking awesome. This is fucking awesome.

0.375 bottle from Hoppiness, Koper, Slovenia, shared with Marko. Black with frothy beige head. Dark chocolate and coffee aroma, milky. Creamy, bitter, dry, coffee, roasty character, full body, strong coffee-like dry finish. No fruit notes, just strong, dark aromas :) Excellent
