MotherBrother (693) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2012
Pour pitch black, with a very small (almost none) tan head. Aroma of finish licorice, liqour, vanilla, dark and rumsoaked fruits, candied apples, kalua(?), boose, salty licorice as well. Alot of funny stuff going on in here. The taste is pretty sweet, but not overwhelming, and also a heavy dose of dry bitterness at the end. Sticky and oily body, with more carbonation than expected. Quite well made.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Una experiencia. Solidez en paladar excelente, con un toque carbónico interesante que no se aprecia realmente en el vaso. El aroma a caramelo se aprecia mejor pensando en que hay flor de jazmín en la receta, pero sino, se queda corto en relación al ensamble. La levadura de champaña se encuentra después de medio vaso más fácilmente que al principio. El volumen de alcohol es sutil, y el retrogusto no se ve afectado. Una experiencia si, incluso en un paquete de alto diseño que refleja la visión integral del producto.

Smells like candy. Black, _no_ head. Oily, nutty, viscous. Very high alcohol flavour.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff, feb-12: Kullsort. En helt særegen og sterk aroma som bringer tankene hen mot gamle båter: tjære og sjø, salt lakris og mørke sjokolader. Ulike sødmer dominerer i smaken og den store munnfylden. Denne må jeg prøve å få tak i for langtidslagring. O du salige, på mandag i annen nov-13 avslutter vi kvelden med en ny flaske av denne perfekte nightcap. Den er så balansert at du merker ikke jordrotasjonen før du reiser deg. For din indre stabilitet burde denne vært på blå resept.

Tide (1785) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle at bar. Black color, almost no head. Strong complex taste with jasmin, chocolate, coffee, roastiness, alcohol, nuts. Roasty, chocolate finish. Extreme, great brew.

This beer is marked by the incredible levels of sweetness achieved. Coffee and chocolate predominate at the effect is quite something. Masks the booze well. While excellent, I can’t help but feel that the individual beers are better flavour and value. Epic beer non-the-less!

hopscotch (9151) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle... Pours new-moon black with no head. The aroma is an intense, fiery swirl of fudge, chocolate crème, espresso & ethanol. Full-bodied and oily with soft carbonation. The intense, sweet flavor is constructed with espresso, light molasses and dark chocolate mocha. Finishes nourishing, bittersweet and boozy. A little rough around the edges, but otherwise quite nice. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
