Alexus (240) - Stavanger, - FEB 11, 2012
Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Black as black can be, packed with aromas. I really can’t describe this beer as my mouth got violated by all the flavors who wanted to join the game. The alcohol is well masked by all the flavors! It’s a really special ale which should only be experienced by all beer-geeks. A truly great collab. brew!

Bottle thanks to Niller - pours black with a thin beige head. Aroma and taste is dark roasted malts, big chocolate, roasted coffee, some licorice and soy, roasted and slight smokey nuances going on, intense and complex brew. Love it!

nordic (104) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle @ Gambrinus, Tartu. Black color. Full body, complex taste. Notes: coffee, chocolate, fruity, roasted malt and much more I am not capable to describe. Sweet at first and bitter, a bit heavy in finish. Extremely good. Tried it for the third time, positively suprises every time.

Version à 15.2%. Une bouteille de 330 ml partagée en deux. Bière noire aux contours pourpres embouteillée le 03-05-13. Superbe mousse kaki qui se transforme rapidement en anneau. La viscosité du liquide est marquée par ces longues jambes qui fondent sur la paroi de mon verre. Au nez, un concentré de notes robustes de fruits et de malts teintés par toutes les possibilités du noir et de ses alliés. Une touche de sauce soya qui me rappelle la version Nøgne Ø. Sur les papilles, beaucoup de notes amères derrière cette décadence lourdement noircie : chocolat, mélasse, prunes, dattes, porto, notes fumées, réglisse salée, café, bourbon vanillé, cuir, tabac, goudron, alcool, bois, charbon. Chaque gorgée lui apporte, on dirait, une nouvelle identité. En bouche, le liquide est drôlement épais, liquoreux à souhait, légèrement collant, avec des bulles qui s’engourdissent. En arrière-goût, une amertume solidement baraquée et une chaleur d’alcool qui surprend par sa retenue respectueuse. Un monstre à apprivoiser avec une certaine patience.

ogivlado (6104) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. I think this is the right place to put a rate here. 15.2% Batch 103., bottled on 03-05-13. Pitch black, minimal sized dark brown head, roast and wood in the nose. Heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, brown sugar, dried fruits and alcohol with notes of raisins and wood. Dried fruits and herbal liquor in the finish. Expected better for sure.

Maakun (1081) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle. Thick black with no head but some brown bubbles. Marzipan, sweet berries, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, marzipan, chocolate pudding, coffee. Very very sweet with sour kick and light roasted bitter finish. Full thick bodied with sticky feel. Massive sweet stuff but not too complex. Still great though.

Love the tokyo. But this not so much. Very thick (too much glucose) the aroma coffee. Taste is coffee and Dark choco, it does not hide the alcohol at all.
