Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2011
Bottled. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aromais extremely powerful with notes of calvados, roasted malt, wood, and alcohol - a bit too much for me. The flavor is very sweet (ofcourse) with strong notes of calvados, roasted malt, and alcohol that grow and straw a burn on the palate and in the throat, but also with notes of dextrose, wood, and coffee, leading to a dry, roasted, and acoholic.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade; 19.2% ABV
Pitch black color with small collar of brown foam. The aroma of roasted malt chocolate and liquorice has a vinous character. Full bodied, more carbonated than the first bottles of Black used to be, with strong roasted malt flavor, overwhelming the chocolate; the alcohol is well present, but it doesn’t become too boozy; again, the barrel gives more a vinous character than calvados; peppery, almost as if chili peppers were used, and some ancho for the flavor.
An experiment more than a wonder.

Mikkeller has reduced the glass size and increased the price. 65kr (12$) for 20cl. I will just visit the bar less and less often...

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller. A dense, finger-thick tan head sits on top of a black body, looking just lovely. The aroma is rather boozy, with calvados, roasted malts, coffee hints and a sugary touch. Boozy, warming, sticky and full-bodied on the palate, with roasted malts, lots of sweetness, some faint coffee notes and a touch of calvados. Lasting finish with sweetness and warmth. Overall, too boozy, intense all the way, and very tasteful, but certainly not a beer to crack a bottle for yourself of, unless you have some time on your hands. 110528
