after 16 hours at ’the office’ i’m happy to find curb your enthusiasm on the telly and a mikkeller black in the beer fridge. man, this is one intense beer! nose is dark choc and stonefruit, like imperial black forrest cake. the palate is a little bit harsh but extremely smooth for the 17.5%. I love it for what it is, but its lacking drinkability..

JBPortland (1253) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 5, 2015
375ml bottle, probably a year old now, pours sludge black with a finger of dark brown head. Right away the nose is big alcohol burn, after a short time it opens up some and has some ashy roast chocolate and nuttiness, with a hint of boozy mint spice. Taste is thick bodied, surprisingly smooth for the ABV, some char chocolate, ash, big nutty roast, booze. Finishes hot with a touch of alchohol burn, there is some lingering roasty chocolate and coffee that is enjoyable. Was expecting a train wreck, but not bad.

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 ŕ 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 légčrement 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 trčs bonne bičre de dégustation ŕ boire trčs 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.
