fkoolen (670) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Pitch black (!) colour, beige foamy head. Intense nose and taste with chocolate, coffee and liquorice tones and big alcohol warmth dominating the flavour, along with dried fruits like dades, figs and cherries, roasted creamy maltsand a tropical fruity hoppy freshness and bitter punch that nicely comes through the pounding porter tones. Sweet and bitter notes fight against three high alcohol grade: complex. Lingering sweet and bitter aftertaste with coffee and fruity notes lasting long. Imperial black IPA would be more appropriate. Medium carbonation, oily thick mouthfeel, big big body.

GTAEgeek (1586) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle, shared by Hamp at Ale Alpharetta. Black, with a ring of dark brown lacing. Immediate and aggressive nose of booze (bourbon or rum...), espresso, toast, and some coconut. VERY heavy body, silky, creamy, and very thick. This is quite a monster of a beer. A lot of burnt character, but balanced and actually tasty. Overly boozy, and not as deep or complex as I’d like from a beer of this ABV and pedigree, but still an outstanding beer.

Cybercat (4285) - Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a rich oily sable - not much head, but this was a short pour. Aroma fills the nose with molasses, roast malt, caramel, and a bit of coffee. Bold flavor trots roast malt, molasses, coffee, miso, caramel and licorice tones across the palate. It is sweet but not cloying. Texture is thick and viscous, if not too fizzy. Oh no, there goes Black Tokyo, go go BrewDogzilla!

Janroctus (3) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2014 does not count
Bottle from Plan B Rotterdam, pours dark black with a brown bit of foam. nice beer with lots of flavors like: chocolate, caramel, coffee and a slight hint of bacon. Really nice beer, but the price is to high for this beer. won’t buy a whole crate but defenitly some bottles.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 15, 2014
(15.2% abv bottle) Really nice pitch black body with a small sized dark brown head. Excellent malty aroma, with a sweet alcoholic opening, honey, caramel and chocolate, followed by a floral note with licorice and cinnamon. Full, harsh palate with decent carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Great, relatively sweet malty flavour with dark chocolate, licorice and caramel, with an alcoholic finish. Sweeter and mellower than Tokyo* at least, a really good beer all in all.

Bosskie (629) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Pitch black, weak head, not a lot of carbonation. Coffee bread creamy smell. Raisins and fruity. Apples, cookies, cinnamon, subtly alcoholic. Pepper. Bread. Taste is quite sweet. Lots of coffee. The sweetness is a bit overbearing. Spicy with a sweetish alcoholic finish. Oily and fizzy and dry. Astringent. Expected more.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog, London. Poured a thick black, with a dense tan head. Huge aroma of dark rum, molasses, treacle and spice. Really thick, syrupy mouth feel. Massive complex flavours of golden syrup, coffee, roasted malt and liquorice. Finish was aniseed, espresso, vanilla pods, burnt sugar and burnt malt. Wonderful.
