Had this one in the fridge for awhile and felt i had to psyche myself up a bit before i could finally crack it open. Once i did pop the bastard little cork, i carefully tilted the mystical bottle and poured myself a sipping glass of black wonder. Witnessed a ruby dark black that shifted to pitch midnight tone once fully poured. No head rested on top, just a glass of "what the hell am i about to drink?" Shifted my nose towards the rim and was treated to a very complex array of smells...cherries, port, brandy, raisin, tar, cigar, pavement, grease, fig and plum. Taste was amazing...dropping (not just hints) but full blown novels containing roasted cold chestnuts, almonds, various forms of candied fruit, fig cake, whiskey pies, grandaddy’s rum, copper (like the taste of a penny). Flavour was very complex, somewhat overwhelming, highly alcoholic, and strangely, not hard to drink and enjoy. The finish is a real kicker, settling back in the inner valleys of the downtown part of the tongue and, like tiny scorpions, just sitting there for a while and lashing their tails...what a beautiful sting. By the end of this bottle I felt like I was living inside of a Melvins record.

Veel koffie en geroosterd mout in de geur. Smaak zet zoet in met caramel en verwarmende alcohol die in balans gebracht wordt door de bittere nasmaak met zoet-bittere chocolade.

Aroma is a very rich one of deep maltiness, mocha, chocolate, fig, espresso and black licorice. Taste is extremely rich maltiness with deep caramel and slight smokiness. Very very nice bitterness to pair. Body is jet black with a nice thick creamy head that retains well.

Strong coffee smell, not really my thing. Looks great, nice and dark. Tastes of nice chocolate and very much coffee at first.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a dark tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are liquorice, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, alcohol, and hops - with a bitter and alcoholic finish.

On tap. Pours oily pitch black no head, tiny lacing. Mind blowing amazing nose, complex dark fruits, alcohol, coffee, dried cherries, and more. Taste is crazy complex, heavy, fruity, dark. Finish is long and lovely. Great beer.

Backlog. Intense with strong alcohol-reminiscent aromas pounding you straight away, followed up by dark-malt aromas, brown sugar, dark bread, chocolate and caramel. Matched with licorice and a hint of smoke.

Botella de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo varias veces durante 2012 y 2013 Una grandisima cerveza, Imperial Stout potente con sabores intensos tostados y quemados con un amargo final también considerable. Cuerpo intenso, sobre todo al ir cogiendo temperatura ambiente con 17.5, Tomada también con 16.5 vol. Me quedo con una botella de cada para darle un homenaje no dentro de mucho.

pours black, small tan head that just leaves a thick coat of lacing. nose reminds me of a bon fire just as the logs are smoking out moisture, yeah. licorice, smoke, mild dark chocolate. thick body, solid booze burn midway. cigarette burn lingers.
