COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Tallboy can from Jackson Spirits. Poured a pitch black dense oily body under a super dense tight foamy mocha brown head. Aroma is more sweet than roasty, sadly. Lots of soy, melted sweet dark chocolate, dark fruit pulp, burnt marshmallow and tobacco. Flavor is similar, slightly less sweet and a touch more smoky. Big body, slight hint of heat that lingers, average carbonation.

VDuquerroux (1183) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle, 1 pint 6 Fl.oz. @Naintré with my dad. A shining dark black night beer with a medium beige creamy head ; good retention. Black chocolate, peat, coffee, light vanilla, toast, herbal note, prune. Medium sweet, round, light warming atmosphere, light dry bitter. Full body, elegant, creamy texture, soft crabonation, chocolate coffee lasting (light) warming finish. Overall, a delicious gourmet beer !

300th review. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Taste the same with some alcohol warmth and dark fruit flavors. Some smokiness at the end. Nice stout medium to thick mouth feel.

Linnet (1653) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
roasty, coffee, chocolate, licorice, soy sauce, hint of berries and vanilla, alcohol. Black colour, medium Brown head, lacing. Heavy saltiness, noticably sweet, medium bite, ABV evident, massive beer, but to me the balance is a bit off, still very rewarding. Fullbodied, thick feel, average carbonation, roasty and warming finish. Solid.

ABS (883) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Very dark brown to black body. Dark brown head, surprisingly big for a beer at 12% ABV. Red fruit and chocolate nose. Heavy alcohol nose if you sniff too deep, almost burned away my nose hairs. Dark red fruit and chocolate flavour. Roasted malt and coffee. Liquorice and some alcohol. Sugar, candy. Very sweet, with quite a bitter, sort of balancing, ending. Extremely thick body. Almost edible. Soft carbonation. Complex and extreme.

MiP (15247) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2016
Draught, 12% at Ølsnedkeren Århus. Strong coffee aroma. Smells like thick, syrupy wort. Black colour. Small stable brown head. The flavour is sweet and spicy. Quite sugary with smoke and tar and marmalade. A little hop bite in the finish, but does not seem very bitter to me. Late chocolate bitterness in the finish, though. Too sweet, in my opinion, but good.

tomekboniek (487) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 26, 2016
KIK. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana średniej wielkości - beżowa. Aromat nie powala swoją intensywnością. Złożony czekolada, kakao, gorzka czekolada. Piwo oznaczające się słodyczą. Smak bardzo złożony. Wszystko to co w aromacie jest również w smaku tylko z intensywnością do kwadratu. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka wysoka, niezalegająca, punktowa. Konsystencja bardzo lepka, smaki niezalegające, które rozpływają się w ustach. Alkohol genialnie ukryty. Zadziwia ogromna pijalność. Pomimo upału za oknem nie odmówiłem sobie skosztowania.
