4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
37.5 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a huge, dense and chocolate brown head. Aroma is solid roasted malty, whiskey and coffee. Wooden and yet also hops fruity. Extremely dextrose sweet, roasted, smoked and dark chocolate mixed with hardroasted coffee notes. Thorat burn into the finish. Quite extreme - yet the barrel aging does give this a bit of smoothness and more depth - still way too sweet.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasting at Papsø
It pours a very thick and oily black color, with just few sparse bubbles. The aroma is not very strong, but quite interesting, with dusty chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee grains, tobacco; light cardboard too; it smells almost like an old grocery store in traditional villages. Strong body, the mouthfeel is actually less oily than expected; the flavor is sweet as usual, with very strong chocolate and some more roasted malt in the final; traces of whiskey. Correct bitterness. Well balanced, in its powerdom.

RBESG 10 Grand Tasting at the Brasserie 4:20 Warehouse. Big thanks to Alex for allowing us liberate this beer from his warehouse shelves! Black beer. Creamy tan head. Lovely sweet dark malt. Sweet black coffee, a little chocolate and some very well joined up whisky. Finishes warming and a little spicy. Has improved with a few months of aging.

Another 3 years has taken most of the heat off of this beer. But it’s also turned quite powdery dry and the coffee is a lot more bitter. Very rich but never an easy drinking beer!
