flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Opaque brownish black color with a tan head. Funky sour lactose, grass, and coffee aroma. Strong sweet coffee, cherry, and plum flavors, with a fair amount of sour lactose. A medium dry finish with a lot of alcohol burn. An interesting combination. I wasnít sure after the ultra funky aroma, but the flavor is pretty nice. Itís growing on me.

Weezel (174) - Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Huge boozy aromas of licorice, port, and sweet coffee. Pitch black. More alcohol in the taste with a chewy texture. Flavors of vanilla, coffee and sweet grapes. Good but needs more depth.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 7 5 9 5 15 On tap @ Kulminator, Antwerp. Oil black, beige head. Roasted coffee and chocolate dominate the nose and taste, along with sweet red wine, softening malts and a strong boozy burn. Quite bitter (roasted/cacao-bitter, not primarily hoppy), lingering aftertaste. Very thick and oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation, huge body.

Dark as the night and with a thick and sticky brown head. Aroma of dried fruits, coffee, alcohol and chocolate. Very nice and complex taste with lot’s of coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and some pleasant bitterness in the end. This is a massive beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (2955) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2014
Draught, 18%, 2012 edition @ Mikkeller, Viktoriagade. Pours cloudy nearly black with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and coffee, with touches of liquorice. Bitter, roasty and vinous flavour, with heavy notes of coffee and pronounced touches of malt and alcohol. Bitter and roasty aftertaste. Good but quite heady and boozy.

MisoW (1085) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from Palme, thanks for this gem. My #1000. Pours black color, small brown head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, vanilla, plums, red fruits, roasted malt, alcohol recognizable. Taste is extra sweet, lightly bitter, vanilla, caramel, cocoa, coffee, red fruits, roasted malt. Extra long, very sweet, coffee finish. This is a desert, extra nice beer.

Bottle shared by jheath99.. Pours black with frothy tan head. Aroma of booze. Flavors of coffee and booze. Bitter, boozy finish. It was almost too much of a boozy flavor for me. Decent beer, but I prefer something more complex.

On tap at Scratch Bar 070314. The biggest baddest beer I have had. Black is everything that you want in a great beer.

Cap is stamped 30/6/2020. What a shelf life.
Appearance: Jet black body with a dense brown head. Head settles to a firm and thick coating.
Aroma: Big fig/raisins with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. Booze shows through, but itís not awful.
Taste: Huge fig, raisin and grape flavors. Boozy finish with some charred malts and dark chocolate. Boozy on the tongue, rubbing alcohol and heavy char on the finish. Not the best, but itís palatable, sort of.
Palate: Thick and near chewy, no carbonation.
Overall: This is too boozy and rough to recommend. Itís much better than the last time I had it from this batch though, I donít know how. Either way Iíd avoid.
