DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 Pours a dark chocolate syrup with a small brown head. Heavy aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, and earthy malts. Heavy coffee in the flavor. Not very roasty but lots of thick sweetness. Like a coffee molasses. Aftertaste is a lingering dryness with some hop/alcohol flavor. Extremely warming, and not overly heavy if you split a bottle.

JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2008
Thick greige head over for all purposes black beer indeed - a purple shine upon pouring, maybe? Deep alcoholic, brandy or brandycake, chocolate, dark fruit as plums, sauced tobacco. Complex, but rather sharp roasted taste, black breadcrust, coffee. Alcohol is amazingly hidden - relatively speaking at least. Nice sourish lining, nearly fruity. Bitter dark grapes flowing. Extremely viscous, oily, nearly solid texture and body. Another indeed extreme beer from MIkkeller/De Proef. Certainly out of the ordinary, and well worth trying despite its not inconsiderable price.

Tasted on bottle at Kulminator from bottle. A very strong beer. The taste remains still on the next day. Verry intens coffee taste.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle (@ RBESG 2008): Pours pitch-black with a stable, brownish head; liquorice, dark malt, sherry, dried fruit and leather in the nose; full sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; lingering, warming, first sweet, later bitter finish with traces of leather and coffee. Very good, but very sweet, indeed......

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk at the pre-plzen knees up. Alround rating: Wow, honey, floural nose, a black mead for sure, very sweet indeed, burnt finish ruins it but would be an excellent non honey mead.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 28, 2008
Botella. Rating # 3900. Poured in a big cognac glass. Pitch black colour with a huge dark brown creamy long lasting head leaving a great sticky lacing. The aroma os bustling with heavy roasted malt and alcohol along with chocolate, dark sweet fruits and coffee. Great filling mouthfeel. The flavour has plenty of roasted malt, lots of alcohol, bitter chocolate, lots of dark fruits, well roasted coffee, some liquorice and bitter hops. Too much alcohol in the flavour. Should have a few years in a cellar before drinking.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2008
This corked and caged bottled brew from Indianapolis, IN poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized very dark brown colored long lasting bubbles that left behind an opaque black colored body with no visible carbonation and a most excellent lacing. The aroma was of vinous whiskey and dark malts. The mouth feel was thick vinous tingly and mildly burning from start to finish. The flavor was extremely yummy with thick dark malt brown malt and whiskey notes.

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Itís a beer that you have to try just because of the absurdly high alcohol. A general rule is 13%+ works in barley wine but not imperial stout, and that seems to have been confirmed here. The nose is actually quite nice, something I enjoyed: sure thereís a tone of chocolate liqueur, but itís actually a really nice (and strong) note of chocolate liqueur, very hot, but almost dessert-like, with notes of black licorice and heavy char. Flavor, though, thatís where this thing turns into a complete mess. Hugely hot, stinging, sharp, biting, boozy, but the char and roast makes this seem like Iím drinking booze distilled off of burning rubber tires.
