COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Death Beer has a pitch black colour and light brown creamy head. Aroma is roasted malt with strong notes of coffee and chocolate. Sweet spicy flavour with smoky aftertaste. It was launched in Iceland in 2011 and has been very well received, especially among younger beer drinkers (20-30 year old). Black Death is a brand owned by Valgeir Sigurðsson, an Icelandic native who launched vodka and snaps lines under this brand in the eighties with great success in many markets. The brand became famous when Slash, the famous guitar player of Guns ‘n’ Roses became an aficionado.

beeranarchist (231) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle at VBC. Black with a red hue. Roasty aroma with notes of especially coffee and chocolate. Sweet and a bit boring. With a Bit higher alcohol percent and more bitterness it could be fine.

mcberko (8719) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small tan head. Nose brings out cocoa, a little vanilla and a touch of roast. Flavour is quite full-bodied, with a good balance of cocoa, vanilla and roast. Finishes on notes of cocoa and vanilla. Surprisingly complex and full. Very good stuff.

NosirIwont (2103) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. 5.8%. No ’best before’ date. Pours almost pitch black, with a tan head. Aroma is smoked, a bit watery, with a hint of cooked vegetables. Flavour is sweet and smoked, a bit watery. Dry, roasted finish, a bit smoked, with a lingering grassy note. Overall okay, but the watery and smoked notes clash; lacks body. 28.02.15.
