JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, - AUG 8, 2012
Tap at Mikkeller Bar. I am not a huge fan of barrel aged impy stouts, but this one might change my mind. Unique aroma! Very thick, very sweet, very peaty, heavy whiskey notes that you can smell all the y from the tap till the glass hits your table. The tequila is more evident in the flavor and the whiskey a little more subdued. Notes of caramel, heavy roast, dark malts, alcohol, preserved dark fruits, licorice, wood. Finishes medium bitter with a little acidity and a nice touch of tequila and peat. Huge one. Impressed.

MrHangover (3140) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark, almost jet black beer with a big brownish head on top. Aroma has loads of chocolate, roasted malts, mildly peaty and boozy. Flavor is very strong, loads of booze in there. The peated influences are a bit faded into the background, but still certainly there. Tequila is certainly noticeable in the boozy character of this beer, but that is also pretty obvious, given this is 18,8%. Light carbonation going on in the moutfheel, long, sticky sweet roasty aftertaste. Nice,full and powerful beer. Good stuff.

Disappointed. Comes on thick with a fruity espresso flavor. Finishes harsh, soaked in astringency. Aftertaste has lingering front of tongue alcohol taste. Not deep. Pointless beer, not enjoyable IMO.

Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Arôme café et alcool bien present. Au palais, explosion café (genre ristretto serré) puis alcool super present.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Poured less viscous than I expected. Massive hit of dark boozy fruit, vanilla, alcohol very present but pleasantly. Beautiful alluring sweetness. Some rich milk chocolate. Touch of funk. Taste is medium sweet luxury. Melting creamy toffee, perfect balance between the spirits. Really perfect. Finishing with an elegant sweetness with bite, taking the edge off the booze with the subtlest slight of hand.

Vells (964) - Riga, LATVIA - NOV 18, 2014
Bit a disappointment, maybe because expectations was so high. Anyways.. standard Mikkeller Black feels even better, not mentioning price/performance aspect. Ofc.. this is a good beer and I liked it. Quite thick roasted malts, dried fruits, choco, bit soy, wood and that salty note of tequila - dont like tequila and even mikkeller black cant change my mind. Sweetish with light bitterness and saltiness. Feels quite oily and warming. Decent brew, but I would prefer others for this price.

Sten (706) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2014
Pitch black beer with a small beige head. The first thing that stands out is the prominent aroma of whisky but it is very well balanced with some dark fruits, roasted malts and a bit of alcohol. Oily texture and a flavour which is medium sweet, heavy malty with hints of chocolate and ripe dark fruit. (Bottle 37,5cl)
