A: Appropriately, the beer pours black in color. It also has no head, but I guess I’m not surprised. S: Doesn’t smell anywhere near as offensive as I feared. Booze, certainly, but it’s mostly just roasted malts. There is a hint of ash and burnt sugar, maybe some licorice, too. T: Although the aroma wasn’t too bad, the flavor is quite another story. Lots of tar flavor accompanied by sugar. There is more tar and asphalt, followed by booze. A very intense licorice flavor, almost like anise extract. A bit of burnt sugar and prunes. M: Medium to full bodied with very low carbonation. O: The aroma was pleasantly surprising, but the flavor was just unfortunate.

On tap at BD57, june 17th 2017. Black body with a beigehead. Aroma is roasty, quite alcoholic, with a strong dry licorice and coffee note. Taste is sweet and boozy with a strong roast note, quite bitter, with cherries and nuts. Dark choco finish, with a lasting leather and roast aftertaste. Quite good.

explosivedog (353) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 22, 2016
Taster at Mikkeller Seoul. Aroma is pure espresso and it is as dark as beers come. Flavour is strong tart plum with a very alcoholic finish. This is big flavour, but oh so complex too. Utterly sublime.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 Bottle shared with JD. 15,7% vol. Thick brown and creamy head. Aroma of sweet berries, toffee, coffee but also complex. Taste is amazing. Bitter sweet complexity. Extremely long lasting taste with no alchohol domination. The kind of beer you just go "wow" and then speechless.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - JUN 21, 2016
16.8%ABV. Imperial Stout. Tapped out black. 40şSRM. Nose has sweet dark fruit, liniment, lo han go (fruit of seraitia grosvenorii), maraschino cherries, Turkish coffees, alcohol with a hint of fermented funk. Nose from a distance has some very attractive honey char siew or honeyed Cantonese roast pork aromas, I say distance because even after its done you still get a lot f astringents in the nose suggesting rubbing alcohol. Mouthfeel is alcoholic. Palate has charcoal, burnt toast, honeyed dates, charred driftwood. Overall, an assault on the senses with an almost abusive belligerence. I am soooo happy right now! Goes on Favorites List !

jakubwloszcz (187) - Piastów, POLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana obfita, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, zostawia świetny lacing. Prezentuje się naprawdę perfekcyjnie. Aromat bardzo złożony: czuć czekoladę, kawę, sos sojowy, paloność, ciemne owoce. W smaku jest bardzo intensywne, pełne, gęste, dominuje gorzka czekolada, jest też lekka kawowa kwaskowość. W odbiorze przeszkadza zdecydowanie palący alkohol, piwo staje się dość szybko męczące.
