Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Black beer with a nice brown head. Pitch black beer with a brown head. Oak aroma, vanilla, milky, hoppy bitter, mint, cocoa, chocolate. Vanilla and oak flavor, vinous, licorice, hop notes, tar, figs, raisins, chocolate. Lovely balance and a great finish. Top class.

Lost Abbey track beer tasting. The beer appears black with a thin beige cap. The aroma...wow! Coffee and roast - so fresh and wonderful. An instant 5 in the aroma category. Bourbon and oak come in after the delectable coffee, giving balance and complexity. The flavor does not disappoint. A remarkable beer. Bourbon is perhaps a bit overshadowed by coffee, but as a daily coffee drinker, I can’t complain. Medium bodied with masterfully disguised alcohol content. Shockingly good. Just outstanding. My highest recommendation.

Sampler at fobab. Pour dark brown with thin head. Nose is of chipotle coffee and chocolate. Peppery taste with exceptional balance.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pour on tap, Avery Strong Ale fest 2012. Dark murky black pour with thin to no dark head, aroma brought notes of thick chocolate, dark fruit, roast, bourbon and espresso, bringing back more chocolate, definitely heavier on that end. Taste was a bit on the sweet side but the chocolate was very authentic, mixing with the vanilla of the bourbon, a slight roasted coffee note helped balanced a bit. Dug this one.

thewolf (10769) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours utterly, completely black with a nice, creamy, beige head. Aroma has vanilla, cocoa, coffee, light roasted, mild vinious. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is really nice, nuts, chocolate, mild coffee, soft vanilla sweetness. Oak dryness. Very sweet, but maintains a very good balance with roasted malts and oakiness. Light warming vinious. Really well-balanced.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. A damn black one with a small chocolaty head. It has a strong chocolate and roasted aroma, lots and lots of chocolate actually. Also extreme amounts of vanilla and some dark coffee. Oh yeah! It has that woody vanilla touch, heavy roasted flavors, tons of quite sweet chocolate. It’s full-bodied with a average carbonation level. Lingering sweet chocolate flavors. Oh my what a beer! Coffee and vanilla in the finish. Could nibb on this all day long! 11.05.2012

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. A black one, topped by a small, tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee, a touch of licorice, some dark chocolate and cocoa, and quite a lot of roasted malts. It’s lightly warming on the palate, sort of boozy so I guess the barrel has some influence, full-bodied, dryish and still sweet. Loads of dark chocolate and cocoa in the flavor, with coffee blending in between. Lasting finish where the coffee are more pronounced than in the aroma and initial flavor, but with the same lovely dark chocolate and coffee. Wow, this is one hell of a beer.

Sampled as a bottle of Track 10 at the brewery. Pours to a pitch black body with a tan head. There were aromas of deep black malt and licorice. Chocolate and oaky bourbon. The flavor is a sweet chocolate, light bourbon, easy drinking coffee, and a light licorice. Very much like a chocolate coffee cake. Rich and sweet. Very smooth beer even though it is a very high ABV.
