A black stout that taste incredible for having such a high alcohol percentage. A unique taste that starts smooth and ends with a berry flavor. Nice that it isn’t oily or thick on the tongue. Almost no head. It cost me 12 EURO but had to try it since I’m a Mikkeller, Nogne-O, and a Brew Dog fan. An overall superb collaboration. Still not sure if I want to pay that price again, but would like to drink it again.

bursprak (400) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle @ Voldby. Horizontal with the 2 other blends. Pours jet black with a smallish beige head. Nose has a mix of red berries, chocolate, roasted malts and sweet vanilla. The high ABV is very well hidden. Taste has a pleasant mix of light tart berries and sweet chocolate and vanilla notes. Reminds me a lot of a nice sherry. By far the best one out of the three.

ABT_S54 (119) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Brewdog glass at Brewdog Birmingham. Pours a thick black liquid with a very small head which disappears almost immediately. Little to no carbonation but acceptable for the style. Taste is upfront coffee with a huge bitterness. The sweetness from the fruity notes (tasting notes say Cranberries and Jasmine) but these delicate flavours cannot overpower the huge burnt malt taste present. Overall a good beer but far from the best in it’s range and at £19 for 33cl it really ought to. Show it a Black Albert or Bourbon County and it wouldn’t know what to do with itself.
