No freeze distilling needed. This beer has been barrelaged 10 times on different bourbon barrels. It took us two years to bring the imperial stout Black up from the original 18% ABV to the amazing 26,1%.How about the taste? There is a reason it is called the “Black Fist”. Decant it as we suggest in the serving tips, and you will have a mindblowing experience. This beer is complex.

By all means the best beer-experience I have had. An explosion of taste, it almost hurts in your mouth. Nothing compares.

Bottle. This beer was a true black fist to my face. Dense oily texture and very dark colour hypnotized when pouring. Rich dark malty aromas bordering with strong whiskey. The taste was a real punch. Initially rich sweet malty complexity. The the heavy alcohol hits with great strength. Not for the faint hearted. More interesting than good IMO, but the level of craft is so high that the points have to be high as well.

375 ml, bottled 26/07/11, shared by Mmahut at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Aroma of quite sharp alcohol, turf, toffee, bourbon, dried fruits.
Taste is also very boozy, hot, with the above mentioned aromas, also coffee and barrel notes.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes very boozy, warm, astringent, dry, roasty-bitter, with some barrel notes.

Propably the strongest beer I’ve had so far. The alcohol is very dominant. Surely a great beer, with loads of big malts and notes from the barrel aging. But overall not my style, I prefer it balanced and this is quite the opposite.

Bottle shared by Per-Ake with Gabriella and I, thanks. Mikkeller Bar, 16th March 15. This one smells like solvent and alcohol, taste is harsh and burning, loads of alcohol. Like a rough liquor
