3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle. Pitch black. Tall beige fine-laced head. Thick as motor oil. Licorice aroma with a definite note of oak. Salty. Rich and sweet malty backbone balanced by roasted malts, and a lot of hops. Quite bitter on the tongue, but overall the beer is nicely balanced. Very complex flavours with notes of raisins, licorice, salt, vanilla and oak.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pitch black ale with a creamy with a small, beige head that never totally disappears. The huge, savage, yet complex aroma is a mélange of milk chocolate, blackstrap molasses, McClelland Scotch whiskey, vanilla, burnt tree nuts, dates and caramel with a trace of green apple-like acetaldehyde. Full-bodied and oily with tickly carbonation. Sweet and carbonaceous up front; bitter as hell on the backside thanks to a ton of red-hot alcohol and, I assume, big-time lupulin. Finishes bitter, caustic and Sahara-dry. Kudos go out to plovmand for sending this world class brew across the pond!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer - ofcourse ;-) with a dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt as well as notes of medium notes of dextrose and a bit of alcohol. The flavor has powerful notes of roasted malt and dextrose as well as medium notes of wood and alcohol, and just a bit of whiskey, leading to a sweet dextrose finish. Too much original black not enough barrel finish for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours pitch back with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of hard roasted malts, sweet vanilla and whisky with a distinct booziness. Massive body, lots of burned malt, vanilla and dextrose with pleasant whisky accents, ashes and wood. Very boozy finish. Hard to drink and digest, but still quite enjoyable. 030410
