Black, oily appearance with minimal tan head. Boozy aroma with a little malt. Sweet flavor with a bit of alcohol burn. Okay.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Kevin. Pours an opaque black with a thin layer of light brown head. Was not a fan, aroma was okay with malts and coffee, but the taste was just too overall sweet and sugary.

Botle. This is a beast. Thick, sweet, burning, fruity, eccentric, and funky. So much going on it is hard to capture in one place. This is near perfection.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is pitch black, head is very small, brownish, creamy, fully diminishing, fair lacing. Nose is sweetish liqueurish, flavor is molasses, coffee liqueur, light smoke, chocolate. Heavy sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty liqueurish mostly heavy bitter, light sweet, alcohol is present but 18% ABV is not recognized. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Excellent heavy but drinkable tasty dessert beer, great one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light sucking pitch black with a small tan head and good lacings. Aromas of lavender, jasmine, red fruit pre-dominate with notes of toast, mandarin, mirabelle and sweet dark malts arise. Really faint carbonation with a smooth even velvety texture and a full body. Potent yet hides a lot of its alcohol content. Sweet, fruity and well malt centred with some astringency. Lasting dominant finish. Balanced and pretty strong! Very palatable sipping beer!

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose has some heavy roasting to it as well as some dark fruits and dark chocolate. Taste is super rich and chocolatey with a lot of roasting and a slightly sweet finish. Really nice...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(BrewDog Tokyo*) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 16.5%
Pitch black colour on the body, a small line of dark brown head on top, fizzy with low retention, leaving no lacing behind.
Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, great fruity notes.
Great taste, wow! Again fruity notes, vanilla, wood, alcohol, roasted malts, liquorice coal, blackberries, chocolate cake, light grass and even some hops, moderate sweet all in all but no cloying.
Medium thick body, carbonation higher than I expected but on good levels, very sticky on the palate.
Very nice and dangerous, I don’t dare finishing the bottle tonight.
