mcberko (10565) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbon, spiciness, and roast. Flavour seems off a bit, with notes of cough syrup, other medicinal notes and light barrel notes. Something seems badly wrong here - how is this in the 100th percentile? Decent, but lacking.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bruce - cheers! It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is earth, roasty, toast, milk chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, rocky road, fudge and treacle. The taste is rich-roasted malt, coffee, toast, earth, light spice, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, warming, cola, burnt caramel and dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Good depth of flavour. Nice balance and rather drinkable.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, vanilla and oak. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, chocolate, oak, vanilla and coffee finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2015
Draught. Low espresso head, lacing at the upper part of the glass. Devil-black body. Attractive smell of dark fruit and dark malts. Comprehensive flavours of dark black fruits joined by mid-sweet black chocolate. Backbone of bourbon warming down the swallow. Far from heavy to drink. A lovely well blended sipper (Black Sensation at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, Copenhagen 12.11.2015).

> An umami/salt/smoke and fresh orange version of our beloved H&V behemoth

[ Bottle ][ bytemesis ][ 330mL ][ Pizza Boy Snifter ][ Trade ][ 1/31/14 ]
>> Pours deep sepia with lower coffee foam. Nose totally insane- rich fudge, vanilla ice cream, sweet smoke, powerful black miso umami, black rock salt. Taste is a bit ashy with decent lemon, finishing true with bitter chocolate, moderate smoke, salt, miso. Palate gets richer, silkier as it warms with bright orange dark chocolate. Fantastic version of this classic.

Ferris (8940) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle - Little booze and nice roasty sweetness. Deep brown black with a decent light brown head. Roast, chocolate, light barrel and a nice finish. Not as good as the big brother, but still good.
