I tasted this great beer last night. At such high price, my expectations where high. The beer lived up to the reputation of being a good beer. Lots of smell , great dark taste with hints of licorice. This is a beer for the special times.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2012
33cl bottle from Hopduvel. Pours black, with a lively brown head that dissipates quickly. Smells of dark red berries, caramel, roasted, soy sauce, brown sugar and malt. Tastes of an excessive sweetness, somewhere between a very oversweetened coffee, and bordering to the point of tasting like soy sauce. Full bodied. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Finishes cloyingly. I want to like it, but really, it’s _way_ too sweet right now. Maybe it’d get better with age, but I’m not entirely certain it’d turn into something I’d love.

mcberko (13227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle, brought back from the UK by the amazing Matts_Property, pours pitch black with a few light brown bubbles and essentially no head. Extremely deep, rich aroma of brandy / port, rich caramel, sweetened chocolate / fudge, espresso, rich roasted malt, dark fruits like raisins, light soy sauce, lots of sugar, and booze. Flavour is no less rich and complex, with the aforementioned liqueurs, fudge, plums, raisins, quite sweet malt, and booze. The ABV is insanely well-hidden underneath this complex dessert stout. Quite sweet, though never cloying, with mountains of depth. Extremely delicious and enjoyable.

abemorsten (3503) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2012
Shared 330 ml bottle at Cardinal. Black body with clear brown edges. Light brown rim. Viscuous liquid sticking to the glass. Booze, dried dark fruits, brown sugar, roasted nuts and dark chocolate on the nose. Most inviting. Thick, oily texture and smooth to drink. Full bodied andd alco warm. Rich flavors of sweet liquorice, roasted nuts and coffee, port, ash and cocoa. Fantastic!

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
12oz bottle. Thanks to timo... Pours a soy saucy at first with lesser intense reddish brown edges and topped with a skimpy light beige head... Deep rich chocolate and roast, booze. A touch of saltiness comes through late with a subtle whiskey spirit... Flavors are extremely sweet with a long lingering late. Chocolate booze and roast in the flavor. Rich and sweet without too large of a body. Boozy and warm without being too thick and cloying. A semi-resilient level of bitterness on the backend to boot.

77ships (7432) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2012
#750 rating: 33 cl. bottle @ home – split by 3 with me taking +/- 20 cl. – purchased at Hopduvel – it comes in a cardboard box which I suppose is meant to justify the price, kind of cheep looking & graced by the usual Brewdog marketing text, not sure whether it is working, kind of doubted about this one but the actual bottle looks lovely, great design – pours pitch, pitch black with virtually no head – smell is very, very sweet, lots of molasses, toffee, liquorish, heavy malt and a lovely touch of soy sauce – taste is heavily sweet, molasses, lots of caramel, thick dark fruits, thick maple syrup, lots of liquorish, hint of autumn leaves, some oak, thick malts (touch roast but it is buried underneath the sweetness), touch dark chocolate, alcohol is almost entirely masked by the sweetness, only a slight nice warming ouch at the end – body is thick, creamy & molasses heavy, low carbonation – beyond the marketing, beyond the faux-hype this is incredible, much better than Black & significantly better than both versions of Tokyo* that I have had, maybe it is the horizon that makes this amazing

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2012
Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Black as black can be, packed with aromas. I really can’t describe this beer as my mouth got violated by all the flavors who wanted to join the game. The alcohol is well masked by all the flavors! It’s a really special ale which should only be experienced by all beer-geeks. A truly great collab. brew!
