omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2012
Bottled. Very black, no head. Aroma of tar and honey. Mega sweet and fiercely alcoholic with thick oily mouthfeel. White pepper that burns with the intense saccharine sweetness. Crude oil and ink - perhaps the slightest hint of whisky. An imperial train wreck - way too pumped with sweetness and alcohol.

On tap at BrewDog Camden. Opaque black beer. Tidy tan head. Palate has presence and body but not as heavy as you might think. Smooth with just a little superfine carbonation. Rich dark malt beautifully joined up with the Jura which provides mellow flavour and just a little warmth. Doesn’t come over like 15%. Traces of caramel and aniseed. Finishes semi dry with a little chocolate. Smooth and good.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
Black color with medium sized brownish creamy head; it pours lighter than expected, with fizzy sounds. Roasted malt aroma, vague, light; even a late trace of soap. Good body structure, dynamic mouthfeel, with very good dark chocolate flavor, tobacco and leather; it has some light sweetness and evident warming alcohol, both helping the drinkability; it’s not boozy despite the high alcohol content; balanced final, a bit drier and more roasty.
Extreme but very good.
