haukur (1623) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAR 12, 2016
backlog at Mikkeller Viktoriagade in feb 15. Huge aroma if peated whisky, along with molasses, dark chocolate and some booze. Complex palate, loads of heat with slight hint of smoke, sausage, vanilla, peat, malts. Somewhat creamy compared to the original which is always a classic. Very nice.

bytemesis (6193) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle, white wax, gift from Secret Santa. Pours opaque black, medium brown head, dissipates slowly, good residual and lacing. Aroma is cocoa, anise, molassesa and whiskey. Flavor is quite sweet, fully bitter, tons of cocoa and anise, strong whiskey with some smoke and peat. Rich and flavorful, a bit hot, but at 17%, its actually doing pretty good. Full body.

FlandersNed (392) - , Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2015
375ml bottle from 4+ years ago. This is NOT the BA Black Hole (higher ABV & no coffee, different label, etc.). Big, rich, dark chocolate liqueur, prune, peated whiskey, oak & espresso flavors with a charred sugar and dried, dark, fruit finish. Heavy body and moderate carbonation.

PartyFowle (942) - - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of peanuts, smoky dark chocolate, wet wood, prune, vanilla extract. Extremely sweet and boozy. Flavor is equally intense, beginning sugary and layered with molasses, brown sugar and reduced prunes and plums. Intense oak character and roast bitterness settle in on the sides of the tongue.

rouhlas (2269) - GREECE - APR 29, 2015
375ml bottle of 2010 at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, courtesy of skullgeorge. Black color with beige brown head. Alcoholic aroma, more like martini than whiskey, fruits, figs raisins plums, light roasted malty notes, chocolate, wood. Taste is sweet in the beginning, alcohol, chocolate and fruits, then it becomes bitter, with strong coffee notes. Full silky body with soft carbonation, bitter chocolate, light coffee and alcoholic finish.

grubypawel (322) - - NOV 20, 2014
Tap@AIBF2014. Pours almost pitch black with a huge beige head. Lots of blended whiskey aromas with hints of good espresso. And a lot of other stuff. Very heavy and very rich. The alcohol in the aroma makes it hard to detect other stuff, but I’m certain there is a lot there.
