Kosmokrator (516) - ITALY - DEC 15, 2014
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!

Procent (170) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bardzo łądny aromat - wanilia, cherry, karmel, czekolada, nuty palone, lekko szczypiące. Barwa ciemnobrunatna, przechodząca w czarną, piana znikoma. W smaku na pierwszej linii czekolada, wanilia, lekki szczypanie (jak od chili), po chwili pojawia się dopiero kawowa goryczka na poziomie średnim ku wysokiemu. Bardzo dobry balans, bardzo gładkie, alkohol dobrze przykryty, czuć jedynie jak rozgrzewa przełyk. Dużo ciała, wysycenie niskie. Bardzo dobre. Warka rozlana 3.06.2013r.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2014
from Erzbierschof, 15.2%; my beer number 10’000 ! - pours an opaque black beer with no foam left; hugely roasted aroma of coffee, licorice and cacao; full-bodied, thick and pretty sweet, a robust bitterness is appearing quite late and lasts forever in a roasted coffeish aftertaste with niotes of vanilla, licorice and tobacco - a compley and robust beauty

Superlativo mix di imperial stout che già singolarmente sono capisaldi di questo stile. Presenza alcolica consistente ma non invasiva, note di cioccolato e caffé dense e profonde come la notte. Birra superlativa!

Kauge (341) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, Bottledog (ca £ 12), 33 cl. Eriline õlu: kõige kangem, kalorirohkem ja kallim... Proovin... ja... nagu ei tahakski midagi kirjutada. Nagu nuiaga pähe oleks saanud... Valades must, tökatine; vaht nagu kakaol, kaob kiiresti, järele jääb nagu nafta. Aroom on tihke, seda nagu saaks noaga lõigata... Portveinine! Tume, kohvine, kakaone, lagritsane, röstine! Veider küll, kuid tunneksin nagu värsket kurki ka. Maitses tungib kõigepealt esile julm, suhkrusiirupine magus, mis täidab kogu suu, kohvine ja ülimalt röstine mõrksus, hapukus, meeletu alkoholisoe, või õigemini alkoholikuum! paneb suus tulevärgi käima, täiesti hull kogemus... Jooksingi nagu mingit... kohvi ja portveini (!) suhkruga segatud kokteili. Ülitäidlane, vähese mulliga, ülikleepjas, keelt pehmeks tegevalt alkoholine, tuntavalt suhkrupommine, massiivselt veider jook. Misasi see õieti on?! Midagi sellist pole ma varem proovinud... Probleem: jooki on alles veel umbes 2/3, aga isu on täis ja suu tundetu. Täiesti faking fantastiline.

Aroma: Medium-high, rich, malty, toasty, roasty,medium meaty, prunes, bready, cacao, light alcohol, Appearance: Opaque black. Small brown head, low retention. Legs. Flavour: Medium alcohol spiciness, light fruity. High malt, toasty, roasty, light licorice, peanuts, dark choclate. Dry finish, lingering roasty and warmth. Medium-high sweetness, high bitterness. Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy. Low carbonation. medium warming. Tingles the tongue! Overall: Extremely well balanced, but the alcohol aroma and taste is a bit sharp. Otherwise very complex and very good! I would like a bit of head retention. 330 ml bottle, poured. *** note: serve colder to hide alcohol. 10C should be good

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
2011 bottle. Thanks GothGargoyle! Pours a dense brown. Aroma of licorice, raisin, sweet coffee. Taste is super sweet, with a chase of bitterness. Extremely creamy, and sustained dry finish that is nicely balanced. 2013 bottle. More brown sugar, raw toffee aroma. The newer carbonation leads to a more bitter taste and abrupt dry finish.
