Small bottle thanks to Countbeer. Black with a brown mist across the top of the beer. Light oak, vanilla and mellow bourbon, rich chocolate, light anise and red wine, toffee, and some molasses. Low carbonation, full body, alcohol is present but not too hot, sweet and viscous, quite rich, hint of bitterness at the end, great mouthfeel and long luxurious ending. The best of the HV series I’ve had so far.

TheJestersBeer (2279) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
250ml bottle, brewed on 2009-07-23. Pours dark brown, thin brown head. Big, woody nose, lots of oak, vanilla, spices, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee beans, fudge. Very full bodied, thick, some sweetness. Rich, complex, fruity, very oaky, lots of wood and vanilla, alcohol, malt, coffee, fudge. Needs time? (2011-08-29)

SlackerMads (2270) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle, bottled in January 2013. Black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Sweet chocolate, vanilla and bourbon in the nose. Same things in the flavour with some light burnt/charcoal notes. Fat and creamy texture. Sweet with some light roasted bitterness, but overall sweet and sticky. Good stuff when in the mood for sweet and heavy.

tricksta_p (2251) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2013
Pours a frightening black void with a small brown head. Aroma of plum, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, raisins, bourbon. Thick oily mouthfeel. I’ve had better BA’s, but still this is a great brew.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2012
18cl bottle. Black color with fine brown head. Roasted aroma. Complex sticky and roasted taste with some oak and vanilla. Lubricant your palate in thick oil. Tastes damn good.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Sampled at Dak’s. Pours a dark brown with garnet hue color. Aroma is whiskey, vanilla, wood and some roast. Taste is sweet with more whiskey and vanilla. Full bodied and sticky. Awesome beer! Very happy to have tried this.

NosirIwont (2157) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. 12.0%. Bottled June 08 2010. Bottle no. 21. Pours almost black. No head. Dusty, sweetish aroma. Dark fruits, malt. Hints of vanilla and wood as it warms. Flavour is sweetish and roasted with notes of coffee and dark fruits. Finish is almost sugary, with dark fruits, cold coffee and a hint of tobacco smoke. Has an alcohol burn, but not matching the high %; well-balanced. Overall good; flavour is better than aroma. Would have been nice with a head. 15.12.13.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Utterly black pour with zero head. The aroma is roasted, burnt malts with huge molasses, caramel, and very hot ethanol- welcomed though. The flavor is a massively booze version of the origina with huge notes of caramel, molasses, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Chocolate and coffee combine with alcoholic oak to create a beautiful arrangement. The palate is thick, viscous, hot, and dry. Exceptional.

Abijen (2088) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a pitch black beer with a not very long lasting brown head. Smells incredible. Heavy chocolate, vanilla, some fruity and alcohol. Tastes vanilla, smooth, chocolate and coffee. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. Just an incredible brew.
