chimpgibbon (331) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Poured less viscous than I expected. Massive hit of dark boozy fruit, vanilla, alcohol very present but pleasantly. Beautiful alluring sweetness. Some rich milk chocolate. Touch of funk. Taste is medium sweet luxury. Melting creamy toffee, perfect balance between the spirits. Really perfect. Finishing with an elegant sweetness with bite, taking the edge off the booze with the subtlest slight of hand.

Vells (744) - Riga, LATVIA - NOV 18, 2014
Bit a disappointment, maybe because expectations was so high. Anyways.. standard Mikkeller Black feels even better, not mentioning price/performance aspect. Ofc.. this is a good beer and I liked it. Quite thick roasted malts, dried fruits, choco, bit soy, wood and that salty note of tequila - dont like tequila and even mikkeller black cant change my mind. Sweetish with light bitterness and saltiness. Feels quite oily and warming. Decent brew, but I would prefer others for this price.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2014
Pitch black beer with a small beige head. The first thing that stands out is the prominent aroma of whisky but it is very well balanced with some dark fruits, roasted malts and a bit of alcohol. Oily texture and a flavour which is medium sweet, heavy malty with hints of chocolate and ripe dark fruit. (Bottle 37,5cl)

A: Coffee, licorice. T: Coffee, licorice, malty, fig. Coffee beans, rosted malts, tequila. Finish full of tequila, long and bitter. Full bodied. What a stout, strong and warm, full of alcohol.

375ml bottle at home. Dark brown/black with a small off-white head. Full body with light carbonation. Alcoholic sweetness with some bitter and sour tones. Coffee, chocolate, alcohol, roasted malts, caramel, wood, vanilla and licorice. But the taste of the tequila is most dominant. An alcoholic coffee bomb, with tequila. Downside, i am not a fan of tequila. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
