Aroma de humo, café & chocolate. No tan Black en color. Dulce, amarga, limón! Alcohol. Mucho alcohol. Parece raro pero tequila y whisky mezclan bien. Buen cuerpo.

Najlepsza wersja Blacka jaka piłem. Tequila tylko podbija smak blecka. Alkohol oczywiscie przy 18.8% musi być wyczuwalny i jest ale przyjemnie jest w tym przypadku ułozony. Piwo nie dla każdego ale warto spróbować bo trudno porównać to do czegokolwiek innego.

RickTheRick (651) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2015
D’un noir aux accents lumineux ambrés, la bière offre une mousse beige mince, mais persistante. Le bouquet est assez linéaire : le chocolat et la tequila y tiennent la vedette et ce, sans équivoque. Cette chère tequila attaque violemment la bouche et dégage une chaleur alcoolisée très intense. On finit par s’y habituer, surtout qu’une rondeur chocolatée, si je peux dire ça ainsi, finit par se glisser dans ce chaos alcoolisé et agressif. Une bouteille de 375ml à partager avec au moins 8 convives.

MrHangover (3307) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark, almost jet black beer with a big brownish head on top. Aroma has loads of chocolate, roasted malts, mildly peaty and boozy. Flavor is very strong, loads of booze in there. The peated influences are a bit faded into the background, but still certainly there. Tequila is certainly noticeable in the boozy character of this beer, but that is also pretty obvious, given this is 18,8%. Light carbonation going on in the moutfheel, long, sticky sweet roasty aftertaste. Nice,full and powerful beer. Good stuff.

Disappointed. Comes on thick with a fruity espresso flavor. Finishes harsh, soaked in astringency. Aftertaste has lingering front of tongue alcohol taste. Not deep. Pointless beer, not enjoyable IMO.

Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Arôme café et alcool bien present. Au palais, explosion café (genre ristretto serré) puis alcool super present.
