Mad_Ferret (992) - 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.

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.

Es una cerveza muy oscura, completamente negra. Compleja, mucho aroma a café, notas tostadas y shoyu. Cuerpo ligero aunque tenga un contenido de alcohol alto. No me parece fácil de beber, una cerveza para aquellos fumadores de puros.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Flaske 0,25l drukket i Skibotn 25 Des 13. Svart. Middels høyt mokkafarget skum som flater helt ut. God aroma. Litt røstet malt & mørk frukt. Smaken er syrlig frukt med en god fylde. Blir enda syrligere etter hvert. Avslutninga er tørr sjokolade.

Botella 0,25l . En el Cabanon. Color negro potente, un petroleo muy llamativo y que no defrauda. Fácil de beber pese a su alta graduación alcohólica. Muy recomendable para después de cenar.
