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.

Douberd (4825) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
(Mikkeller 黑 / Black (Tequila/Speyside Edition)) Bottle 375 ml, received a couple of years from Cuso, thanks Imro! Served into a snifter, ABV 18.8! Dark brown to almost black colour on the body, not as thick a pour as I expected. Head is light beige in colour, one finger in size and thin, with average retention. Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, whiskey. Light iodium, more medicinal alcohol, faint wood. You can get tipsy by the aroma alone. Sweet and very boozy taste, with indeed tequila and lots of whiskey, it’s like you’re taking shots of one after each other. Some dark fruits underneath, light roasted malts and bitterness. Medium thick body with soft carbonation, sticky on the palate and a warming feeling on the body. Too harsh of a beer, I had a full glass but it’s boozy character makes it hard to even finish a taster.

Gluepot (423) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 Very little carbonation or head. Thin consistency but some rich taste features, including berries, chocolate, alcohol warmth and some sourness. Less than you would expect at 18.8% abv

Habanero (4026) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2015
Tap Pitch black body with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, tequila, peat and whiskey. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, slightly bitter with an alcohol burn. Full bodied, oily texture and soft to flat carb. A heavy and very nice impy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Najlepsza wersja Blacka jaka piłem. Tequila tylko podbija smak blecka. Alkohol oczywiscie przy 18.8% musi być wyczuwalny i jest ale przyjemnie jest w tym przypadku ułozony. Piwo nie dla każdego ale warto spróbować bo trudno porównać to do czegokolwiek innego.

RickTheRick (929) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2015
D’un noir aux accents lumineux ambrés, la bière offre une mousse beige mince, mais persistante. Le bouquet est assez linéaire : le chocolat et la tequila y tiennent la vedette et ce, sans équivoque. Cette chère tequila attaque violemment la bouche et dégage une chaleur alcoolisée très intense. On finit par s’y habituer, surtout qu’une rondeur chocolatée, si je peux dire ça ainsi, finit par se glisser dans ce chaos alcoolisé et agressif. Une bouteille de 375ml à partager avec au moins 8 convives.

MrHangover (3936) - 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.
