Es impresionante como han sacado lo mejor de cada una de las tres. La verdad es que merecen ser castigados por no haberlo hecho antes! Influirá el momento o lo que sea pero para mi es un nuevo clásico. En este caso ni hablo de ella... Ni falta que hace.

Fabulosa. Top ten. En beuria després de cada àpat copiós si no fos pel preu i la dificultat de trobar-ne.

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!

My perfect beer. Big sweet, and dark. Pours pitch black with a small head. No light gets through this. Had it twice, the original batch after it had been aged a couple years and the more recent batch, only a couple months old. The younger batch was much more "wild" with the alcohol being more noticable than in the original batch with some age on it...

Definitivamente um achado, cor escura como óleo sem espumada (nada mesmo). Na boca é licorosa como um vinho do porto se destacando notas de ameixa talvez um pouco de própolis. É uma cerveja única!

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Nera, densa ed impenetrabile con un velo accennato di schiuma marroncino chiaro. Cioccolato, caffè, pasta frolla, toffee, frutti rossi, sciroppo di zucchero, biscotti, malti tostati... un cocktail avvolgente di aromi e sapori conquista naso e palato e non lascia scampo! Si distingue il carattere rotondo e fruttato della Tokyo che evolve verso il finale tostato e bruciacchiato tipico della Black (la Dark Horizon mi manca...). Buon equilibrio tra l’abboccato dolce e zuccherino ed il retrogusto amaro e asciutto ma nel complesso è una birra irruente, sfacciata ed intensissima, di corpo pieno e "spesso" e di struttura sciropposa e liquorosa, l’effervescenza gentile è l’unico fattore che concede un po’ di respiro! La moderazione e la grazia cercatele altrove, qui trovate solo sfacciataggine e potenza... memorabile!

Great monster of a beer, it’s a night in all by itself! Intense imperial stout with loads of deep, dark and sweet flavours!

Bottle - Smells gorgeous - smoke, soy, tar , brown sugar, alkohol. Looks lovely - Deep black body, brown creamy short lived head. You can see how he beer really sticks to the glass when swirling it, probably the brown sugar. Taste is complex, sweet - brown sugar, soy, smoke, woody, vanilla, the carbonation disappears quite fast but that doesn’t affect the beer in a negative way, I would rather say it’s better without. It’s easy to forget that this little fella has a ABV at 17.2% - share it with a friend.

This beer is more than outstanding. Mathematically speaking it’s like outstanding^2. Appearance: Pitch black, you won’t see anything on the other side of the glass, so don’t even bother looking. I took a photo of it and checked in GIMP and it was 0,0,0 in RGB meaning it was pure black. And it really is. Head was dark tan, medium in size and dropped pretty quickly, leaving no trace neither on the glass or the beer. Aroma: Roast, coffee, roast, chocolate, roast and repeat. And so intense! Amazing aroma, and you can barely smell the alcohol (and it’s 15,2% abv!). And even that little hint of alcohol does absolutely nothing to the aroma, if anything, it gives it more power. Taste: Very rich in taste, with lots of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste of alcohol is present but it’s nice, pleaseant and warming. And again - taste is very rich, very intensive and in your face. Pure awesomeness. Mouthfeel: full bodied and almost flat. Overall: Another bottle please, this beer is insane and that’s the way I like it! Enjoyed for a very long time from a teku glass. Beer was served in room temperature (highly reccommended!)

Extremely pleasant to drink. Not to much aroma, but that might be related to a bit cold serving temperature. Otherwise a fantastic beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
