Bottle about 1.5 years aged. Pitch black body with absolutely no carbonation or head. Aroma is like pinot noir but also has some balsamic vinegar and dark chocolate. The alcohol is still noticeable in the nose though I’d hoped it would have subdued by now. It starts off with a wallop of sweetness and alcohol. The sugary sweetness is almost unnatural and the alcohol is mostly noticeable due to the burn in the mouth. A coffee roast dominates at the finish and in the aftertaste. It’s very thin on the palate and the lack of carbonation doesn’t aid this at all. I can’t envision a scenario where this would be en enjoyable choice.

Tap, Labeerynt, Gdańsk. Pachnie rewelacyjnie. Aromat to likierowa kompozycja dobrej czarnej kawy i gorzkiej czekolady podanej z mocnym alkoholem (pijąc cały czas miałem wrażenie, że to piwo było leżakowane w beczce po czymś mocniejszym). W smaku bardzo dużo słodyczy i równie dużo goryczki czyli idealny słodko-gorzki balans na bardzo wysokim poziomie aromatyzowany kawą i czekoladą (przemknął mi przez chwilę popiół za którym nie przepadam ale na szczęście był to tylko krótki epizod). Black jest kremowy, niesamowicie gęsty i wyraźnie alkoholowy a procenty mocno rozgrzewają przełyk i podniebienie i szybko uderzają do głowy. Doskonałe piwo którym warto się delektować jak najlepszymi likierami (tylko, że w likierach próżno szukać takiej goryczki).

Lovely aroma of roasted malt mixed with coffee and smoke start emerging from the glass. Light foaming can be caused when the glass is lovingly being careened. Fatty lace hangs in the glass. Sweet taste of some fruit roam briefly tongue before coffee tones saturates the entire mouth. Shortly after burning alcohol through with a sharp, bitter taste that warms down to the ... hole. It is certainly not a beer I care about I think .... and sipping briefly for it anyway! The same result as before, but I find this time the sweetness to a greater extent and is able to maintain it and carry it into the bitterness of the coffee again as I can better maintain the alcohol is pointed and warming effect. I take the plunge again and by the third mouthful I am almost sold. It pays to let the beer get around the whole of the mouth of its nuances are so wide-ranging that it takes some time to receive this bombardment of tasting notes. Conversely, I also bring a warning to newcomers in stouts. It is not right here you have to start with this type of beer. It is certainly not a guzzle beer, so if you have not ventured fully the stouts wonderful and diverse world yet, so save it for later, or you risk being scared. But it is also no problem to store it, for it remains cunningly for 10 years and probably much longer. I find it delicious.

The couleur brune on ne voit pas à travers la couleur de la mousse est marron clair elle et passer tenace Au nez et on va trouver des aromes un peu vineux cacaoté et légèrement caféine En bouche elle va se trouver assez liquoreuse avec une amertume assez franche on va trouver des saveurs de Porto café noir on sent beaucoup de l’alcool en bouche Une très bonne bière de dégustation à boire très doucement

Barwa czarna nieprzejrzysta, obfita drobno i średniopęcherzykowa ciemnobeżowa piana, ładny lacing. Aromat kawy, czekolady, whiskey, nieco alkoholowy, karmelowy, nieco owocowy. Smak bardzo mocno palony, kwaśnawy, lekko alkoholowy, z początku nieco słodkawy, a na końcu mega wytrawny. Krótka silna goryczka. Mocno palony posmak pozostaje w ustach. Butelka 26.04.2024

andriesradu (605) - ROMANIA - AUG 21, 2015
Pours pitch black with a huge brown head. Sweet, alchool, bourbon, sherry aroma, roasted malt, light coffee. Flavor is moderate to heavy bitter with quite strong notes of alchool, also roasted malt, light sherry, a bit sharp. Long, heavy bitter and burned wood aftertaste. Alchool is a bit to strong overall.

Butelka 375 ml. Kapitalne, wielkie piwo. Ilośc doznań smakowych wprost oszałamiająca. Mnóstwo Kawy czekolady lukrecji ciemnych owoców, chmielu! Goryczka wysoka jak na RIS-a nawet bardzo ale w przyjemny sposób podkreślajacy tylko walory Blacka. Gęste wyklejajace poprostu pyszne!

Nice black color with medium head. Aroma full of cocoa and coffee with hinch of caramel and citrus. Taste: spicy, cocoa and coffee with milk with long roasty and hoppy resin bitterness and caramel finnish. Semi carbonated and smooth, alcohol is present but it is well covered. Very nice beer!
