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.

Shared a bottle yesterday with a friend. Black liquid with a very small brown head which disappeared in a few seconds. Lots of caramel in the aroma along with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Very sweet taste of bourbon, caramel, chocolate. Light bitterness. Nice alcohol burn, it wasn’t as harsh as I thought it would be. Creamy and thick texture. soft carbonation. Not that complex at all, still a great beer and a bomb of flavours.

37.5 cl bottle @ home shared with a few people. Pours black with a tiny tan head that leaves no lacing. Aroma and flavour are chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and dried fruit - with warming alcohol in the finish.

MrHangover (3583) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle @ Camping RateBeers 2015; Nat & Winderig, courtesy of the crew! Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer without any head on top. Aroma is medicinal, licorice. loads of booze, wood and bourbon. Flavor is very boozy, loads of different stuff going on. The alcohol overpowers at first, but later comes the touches of vanilla, bourbon, caramel and loads of wood. Very, very strong for sure, very complex as well. This turned out pretty well spent money for this bottle. Nice one!

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle bought in Copenhagen in 2013. Black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of bourbon, vanilla, some coffee and alcohol. Similar taste although with more alcohol. Full body and with a very long finish. A beer to sip, better than expected.
