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!

While this one is the least complex of the three, it’s still incredibly tasty. Has a bit of warmth in the finish. All the flavors are dominated by the sweet. Could easily sip on a couple of these. Thanks again to John for his generosity in his gift of this to me!

Jamedra (708) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2015
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je znát po ovocném likéru připomínající jahody a pomeranč s nádechem dubu a alkoholu. Pěna je zlatohnědá, jemná, nízká a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je neprůsvitná, temná čerň. Chuť je výrazně alkoholová s nádechem karamelu, hořké čokolády a ovocného likéru, finiš je slabě hořký, výrazně alkoholový s držícím palčivým ocasem. V ústech pivo působí mohutně, má silný říz a je hůře pitelné. Jedná se o opravdu mohutný,výrazný imperial stout, kde ta jedna třetinka je téměř nezdolná i když chutná v první deci.

Bottle from Wholefoods Market Kensington. I’ve had this about 2 or 3 years. Pour’s incredible, inky black, thick and oily. Probably thickest pour I’ve seen on a non-vintage beer. Very dark brown to black opaque in the glass, very thin brown tan head which dissipates to nothing almost immediately. Nose is sweet black treacle, savoury Marmite/yeast extract, molasses, aged wood barrel, sherry, port, black sugar, roasted dark malts. Sweet fortified beer, slight oxidisation, dark fruits, prune, raisins, dried fig. Taste is pretty damn good. Dark fruity prune, dried fig, raisins and sultanas, sherry, tangy dried fruit, sultanas and raisins, Christmas cake, plum pudding, roasted dark malts. The hops and dark malt is giving this a huge dried fruit profile. Sweet, tangy, little dryness with the sweetness. Wish I’d kept this for Christmas! It’s great to have a big flavoured stout which has balance too.

Kavu (3140) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Taste from a from a bottle @ a friend’s place. Pours extremely dark brown with no head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, port vine, chocolate, coffee, alcohol and perfume. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, liquorice, alcohol, hops, you name it. Very sweet at first but full of ash and tar in the finish. Just sublime.

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 Řlbutikken 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, Tromsř 31.07.2015).

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