Gęste, jak olej. Pozostaje na szkle. Mega wyraziste i pełne. Kiedy je piłem wyrywało z butw. Świetne piwo.

Keg at Ushers. Pours black with dark brown head. Nose is roast, bitterness, booze, coffee. Taste is very boozy, smooth, roasty, coffee and chocolate, strong boozy finish. Even for big beer IS lover this is way too boozy.

Nocturne (1773) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2016
375ml bottle. Black colour. Manages plenty of brown head. Nose of burnt bread, liquorice, coffee and earth. Quite a bitter, savoury, umami feel to the taste, and some sticky molasses. Doesnt drink near its ABV. Maybe a bit rougher than Id like though.

Po otwarciu butelki aromaty szampanskie, nastepnie sporo kawy, palonosci i czekolada. Po przelaniu do szkła, barwa czarna. Brązowa drobnopecherzykowa piana. Ze szkła aromaty takie jak z butelki, jednak juz bez nut szampanskich. W smaku palona kawa, czekolada, palone slody. Byłoby fajnie, gdyby nie paskudna, ordynarna i przesadzona gorycz, ktora niszczy to piwo. Jest tak paskudna, ze ciezko bylo mi wypic cala butelke i polowe musialem wylac. Efekt przypomina rozgryzienie jakiegos lekarstwa. Uwielbiam mocno goryczkowe piwa, ale tutaj nie ma goryczki, to jest okrutna gorycz nie do zaakceptowania. Alkohol jest dosc dobrze ukryty i objawia sie jedynie rozgrzewaniem w przelyku. Kupilem dwie butelki i druga idzie do piwnicy. Zobaczymy za pare lat co z tego wyjdzie. Nie mam jednak ochoty wracac do tego wynalazku.

SkillsFactory (523) - ITALY - FEB 22, 2016
Nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma nocciola che, considerata la gradazione alcolica, risulta molto persistente. Aroma forte di caff tostato, cioccolato fondente, liquirizia, cherry, zucchero bruciato, melassa, note di vaniglia. Al palato parte dolcissima ed etilica con cioccolato fondente, liquirizia, cherry e melassa, cioccolato fondente che permane anche nella sua lunghissima coda insieme ad un forte amaro tostato di caff misto ad erbaceo. Corpo pi che pieno, non molto carbonata, masticabile.

On tap at hopaholic. Black colour (badum-tss), with a small brown head that disappears instantly. Nose is roasted malts with some coffee. Taste starts with some coffee that comes a huge hit of bitterness, with a lingering aftertaste. I like bitter beers but this a little bit too much.

HEFTIG!!!!!!!&# Not for sissies!!!!! Wie wahr. Mit jedem Schluck ein unfassbar intensives, fast schmerzhaftes Geschmackserlebnis. Im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes BLACK. Aus Mikkeller Bottle Shop, ca 11 Euro/375ml. Lohnt sich absolut.

Holy crap. Pours a thick, black and oily viscous opaque body with a thick, creamy tan head. The nose is rich and robust with a heavy roasted malt, light smoky cocoa and espresso with a pinch of anise. Smooth and super rich with tons of roasted bitterness. The finish is warm, and hot with a super thick and oily espresso bean lingering. Sip this brew for ever!
