Bottle. Black with a dark brown tinge, and a dark brown head that disappears instantly. Aroma: roasted, licorice, dark chocolate, creamy, sticky toffee. Taste: chocolate liqueur, licorice, boozy, syrup, coffee, toffee, something else I can’t exactly pinpoint but recognize from some other high ABV stouts like Dark Horizon 3 and Tokyo* (I described it as red onions in DH3, and maybe it’s something like that). Full bodied. This is too sweet really, but still pretty nice.

Rated based on notes taken 28 June 2014 -- An imposing beer. As mysterious looking as it is delicious. It did me in.

330ml bottle, batch 057, stored in my cellar for a few years, bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in November 2011. The noisy pour reveals a rapidly dissipating brown head. Minimal lacing. Deep black body. Rich aromas of dark chocolate, wood, and dark bread. Comprehensive and well blended flavours of black malts, bitter dark fruits, molasses, coffee, biscuit and integrated alcohol warming down the swallow. Lingering aftertaste. Full bodied and velvety texture. Wonderful. Sipper par excellence (summer holiday celebration, Tromsø 31.07.2015).

Bottle. Pours inky black with little head or lacing. Aroma is lots of anise, molasses, licorice, chocolate, booze. Flavor is medium sweet and fully bitter, lots of roast, cocoa, molasses, licorice and booziness. Hot. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. Hot

Dégustée avec Mademoiselle Irina et Marco - cette bière qui tire 15,2% affiche fièrement des notes de fumée, de café fort et de mélasse. La bière fut dégustée avec un fromage bleu. La rondeur, la souplesse, le corps ainsi que la puissance de la bière trouva un pairage absolument parfait avec ce fromage salé et gras. riches et ronds, les deux corps se marient à merveille dans un ensemble acidulé, fongique, lourd et soyeux. Un amalgame parafait!

À l’ouverture de la bouteille quand on la verse dans le verre on a l’impression de voir de l’huile coulé Ensuite pour l’apparence elle est complètement noir et on a même l’impression qu’il n’y a pas de gaz tellement la mousse et peu présente Honey on va sentir des arômes de fruits secs de noix de bois sec En bouche elle va se trouver très vigoureuse et épaisse il y a peu de gaz et on va sentir des saveurs de chicorée chocolat noir L’amertume va se trouver assez présente par contre je suis assez surpris que l’on ne sente pas l’alcool qui pourtant si présente C’est vraiment une super bon pour une bière extrême !!!

Cervezon probado en el bar de mikkeller, con un olor impresionante y un sabor el cual al principio parece un poco fuerte, pero que según avanza es más y más deliciosa. Volveré a probarlo sin lugar a dudas.
