4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sort som natta, med et lyse brunt skum (såpeaktig), dette holdt bra og la seg til slutt som en ring. Aroma av røstet malt, whisky, tequila, sjokolade, kaffe, og hint av sitrus. smaken følger aroma, menb her er alkoholen litt mer fremtredende, fint balansert øl med en oljete munnfølelse.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Pours with almost no head, deeply black colour. It smells fantastic! Chocolate liquor, coffee, dark friuts, some whisky notes, some sour tequilla notes. It’s wow! It taste as good as it smells, great bitterness is a well ballance for it sweetness. And there are whisky and tequilla notes in taste also. The alcohol is quite high, but I don’t consider it as something bad. The finish is very long with a variety of notes. Excellent beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Almost no head. Dark brown colour (not black). Much alcohol in aroma, also some tequilla hints. Taste: coffee liqueur with notes of tequilla and some whisky. Unfortunatelly aging gave this beer to much sourness, which doesn’t work so good here. Medium body, it should be more oily texture for me. Worse than the basic Black.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a big fan of black. This one is kind of special. Tequilla barrell gives it this sour contra to bitter sweet coffe havy flavours. Lots of nuts, chocolate, coffee. Whisky barrel gives it some saltyness. Texture really oily. Full body. The high alcohol level makes it a bit hard to drink though.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 Shared bottle with 2 other friends. Poured a slight murky Black colour with a non lasting head. The alcohol and tequila takes over the flavours of this one, some dark malts, chocolate, ash, sweet caramel, earth. This one is to much and not Nice anymore. Have had other Black versions and they were all Way better as this one
