volksygge (10) - NORWAY - APR 16, 2014
Eye: pitch black, small unstable head, strong lacing though Nose: roasted malts, coffee, alcohol, some wood, some raisins, smoke(?) Mouth: molasses, coffee, vanilla hits nose from the back, alcohol, slightly umami, sticky, low on carbo, heavy Palate: Big, low carbonation, sticky. --- A very good example of my favourite style. Heavy, complex, alcoholic. You love it or hate it. I choose the first option.

@Nedre Mölla 2/4-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Mörk choklad, rostad malt, lite rökig. Smak: Mörk choklad, sötma, nötig, rostad malt. Munkänslan är fyllig, hyfsat oljig konsistens och lång avslutning, även alkoholvärmande.

Bottle, 03/24/2014. Pours black, thin dark tan head swirls and fades to a few wisps on the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is lightly peated, soy sauce, caramel with melted chocolate, thick char roast, smooth ground coffee, sweeter raisin near the finish, dusty tobacco. Taste is sweet chocolate, dark fruits, yet balanced by licorice, smooth bitter roast and coffee. Thick body liqueur-like, touch of booze yet surprisingly smooth, well balanced for a brew this size. Well done.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a oversized wine goblet. Poured jet black with zero head. Very few very tiny bubbles so no lacing. Aroma is smoked peat, dark chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, smoked malts, sweet caramel, alcohol, finishes with a bit of bitterness. This is a complex beer and at 16% it’s a sipper. That’s good because it takes all those small trips across the pallate to really appreciate just how complex and flavorful this beer is. I’ve had a good bit of Tokio, and I’ve tried Black, I’ve never had Dark Horizon. I like Tokio and would put it beside DogFishHead WorldWide Stout, a solid go to beer if you’re looking for a high abv stout and you’ve got some extra cash laying about. Pricey, but, kind of worth it. This beer is better than Tokio alone, but, just a little. Black Tokyo Horizon is Tokyo after finishing school.

Mad_Ferret (553) - SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
Draft @ Mikkeller Bar Sthlm opening.
App: Pitch black, viscous, dark brown dissipating head.
Aroma: Sweet roasted with molasses, dark chocolate, sweetened black coffee, wood, some vanilla maybe.
Taste: It’s as syrupy sweet and intensely roasted as I remember it. Molasses, coffee and dark chocolate with some alcohol warmth dominates.
Palate: Big, low carbonation, sticky.
Overall: If you like it sweet it’s a pretty nice one, and the alcohol isn’t too overpowering really. Compared to some other big stouts it might get a bit shallow though.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Thick black with a small brown head. Aroma is rich chocolate, caramel, coffee, vanilla, molasses. Taste is sweet rich chocolate and molasses, light bitter roasted chocolate and coffee finish. Smooth full bodied with a soft carbonation.

Wow! Big, bold flavor! Thick and chewy for sure. Black in color so it lives up to its name. Definitely one of my favorite stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog, bottle via Systembolaget. Nice experiment, although can’t get over the feeling that all three brews are better as standalones.

Very strong and intense whiskey beer. Thin but full of flavor. Not my type of beer but for sure an exceptional brew.

Cervesa per ocasions especials ja que la seva graduació no permet abusar-ne. Millora ostensiblement en matisos quan agafa temperatura ambient.
