Bottle shared with dad in law, served around 12 celsius. Black with a small head.Smells heavy of alcohol, and some coffe. Alcohol is a bit dominating but not unplesant. Coffe, some chocolate, raisins and a bunch more. Liqourice makes itís way when it heats up. Long aftertaste. A nice beer that should be shared. A wee bit heavy to finish a whole bottle alone i thinck.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Bottle: Dark brown, nearly black pour. No real head, a few khaki colored bubbled that fade instantly. Nose is super heavy, nearly cloying, very sweet. Brown sugar, chocolate, booze, dates, caramel, mild oxidation, Lots & lots & lots of sweet, residual, unattenuated sugar. Flavor is a little more roasty up front, mild dry cocoa powder. Still a big backbone of brown sugar, molasses, oxidation, anise, leather, & intense sweetness. Warm booziness from start to finish, lingering for days. Mild burnt caramel.

29/IV/14 - 37.5cl bottle @ De Hopduvel - BB: n/a (2014-445) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, no head. Aroma: sweet, lots of caramel, vanilla notes, bit peppery, mocha, alcohol, soft vanilla notes, milk chocolate, more alcohol, roasted stuff. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, lots of caramel, some mocha, dark chocolate, alcohol is very noticeable, raisins. Aftertaste: bitter notes, dark chocolate, quite a bit of vanilla, caramel, soft alcohol burn but not too much, I you consider the ABV. Pretty bitter ending with roasted flavours, sugary and more alcohol.

Sample from a bottle (375 ml) shared by BoboChamp while I was visiting Hopduvel. Thanks Ignace! Black with notes head, but some legs from the alcohol. Aroma is boozy, but itís manageable and thereís definitely some complexity here with dark fruits, dark chocolate, spicy notes, roasted malt, vanilla and light caramel. Taste is boozier than aroma (warming/burning) with dark chocolate, alcohol, dark fruits, coffee, caramel and wood. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Liquorous mouthfeel. Warming/burning finish. Itís not a bad sipper at all in very small quantity. Unlike Struise Double Black (26 % abv) - which is one of the most amazing beer ever made -, this one doesnít hide the alcohol at all.

38cl, as Mikkeller Black Black, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2012, thx to thewolf!, very complex sweet Stout, roasted/alcoholic and slightly fruity/woody, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!, WOW!

Bottle, 03/22/2014. Pours black, thin light tan head fades to a fine wisp on the surface, medium ring of lacing, soapy legs cling to the glass. Aroma is honeyed dark chocolate brownie, licorice, surrounded by rich caramel, vanilla, barrel notes, dried dark fruit, touch of alcohol in the finish. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, heavy roast and char, dark cherries, rich caramel, earthy bitter barrel with alcohol. Liqueur-like body. Delicious.

37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, booze, chocolate, vanilla, liquorice, and dried fruits - with a bitter and boozy finish.
