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!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 28, 2013
THOUGHTS: Could smell this one the second the first hiss escaped from the bottle as I began to pry the cap off. Hid alcohol very well for the high ABV. It was noticeable but not at all harsh. Very intense but rather smooth. Even better tasting as it warmed. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an opaque black with a small, light brown head that was almost reddish and nearly fully diminished. The aroma had heavy roasted malts, coffee, chocolate syrup and very dark chocolate; hints of banana; raisin; prune; cherry;port; hints of smoke and wood; light alcohol; and dark fruits. The initial flavor was moderate to heavily sweet, and slightly bitter and acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet, moderately bitter and ever so slightly sour. There was chocolate syrup, dark chocolate, dark fruit, hints of bacon, alcohol, prune, raisin, roasted malt, coffee, cherry dark fruit, and burnt malt. The full body was oily and sticky on the lips with soft yet rather tingly carbonation and a slightly alcoholic finish.

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 (1635) - 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 (869) - 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 (15193) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2016
Draught, 12% at Řlsnedkeren Ĺrhus. 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 (468) - 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.

Growler van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte U: Zwart met dunne donkerbruine schuimkraag G: geroosterde mout, bourbon en vanille S: Geroosterde moutbitterheid in de aanzet verweven met iets zoet. Koffie en cacao. Veel alcoholwarmte ("boozy") en geroosterde moutbitterheid in de afdronk. Mooi sticky mondgevoel. Lekker dessertbier!
