0.375 l bottle. Pitch black with small brown head. Sweet very burnt aroma with notes of charcoal, rum, licorice, soya sauce, alcohol and solvent. Thick bittersweet flavor infused with charcoal , dark sugar, rum and burning alcohol. Hard to drink, hard to rate. To my mind, this kind of beers should be aged at least a year.

Bottle. Pitch black, medium creamy head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, cream, leather, tar, some alcohol. Full, rather sweet taste of chocolate and cream, some soy. Not too sure about any hops. The mighty alcohol content is present, but not very prominent. Impressive stout, overall.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 19, 2008
(Bottled) Almost black with a small, brown head. Bready, very leathery aroma with chocolate, milky sourness and some soy sauce. Quite an alcohol burn in the flavor with burned malt, some black coffee, but also syrupy soy-sauce sweetness. Full-bodied, very malty palate with low carbonation. Like Black Hole, but with more alcohol and sweetness. Not very drinkable when young, but might be good when properly aged.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2008
I think beerlando shared this one. Alcohol on the nose right away, licoricce, and sambucca in the aroma. Pours dark dark brown, black with no head. The flavor is a little smokey at first, with some alcohol burn, coffee and licoricce, intense dark chocolate, with a spicy finish. Surprising light on the palate. wow.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 Awesome "beer" It is almost more like a port to me. Amazing aroma, almost wine like. Pours black with brown head and some lacing. Much sweeter than I had anticipated. Still has the notable roasted coffee flavour with slight bitterness on the finish. Sweeter than black hole. one to savour

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 12, 2008
Poured a opaque black with a large creamy long lasting brown head. The aroma is semi-sweet with a fair amount of roasted malt. Some chocolate and a hint of ash. You can smell some alcohol but it really does blend well all the malt aroma. The flavor large. Tons of roasted malt. Sweet start with a semi-dry finish. Moderately bitter with just a touch of pepper. Full bodied with big warmth.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a great, big brown head which sort of ‘rains down’. Some lacing. Powerful sweet aroma; kind of tears up the nose at first, before you get used to it. The initial flavour is very sweet – feels almost like drinking sugar – and it’s very dominating; thus, the ‘real’ flavour is in the finish, which is quite complex with bitter chocolate, licorice and apple. Feels dry and has a sherry/dessert wine-feel to it. This is some crazy shit. At first I could only drink this in small sips, but it became easier the more I had had :-). The beer is a bit hard to describe as such because it’s so overwhelming. The high alcohol content is what makes this beer interesting; it’s not a masterpiece in itself or anything – actually not too well balanced, but the overall feel of it is great, because of the alcohol. I’d drink it again. 05-04-08.
