Bottle. Oily black pour with a small froth of dark tan foam. Aroma is cognac with dense plum and background chocolate. Taste is sweet cognac with dry ashy roast and chocolate and thin bitterness with alcohol. Surprisingly clean mouthfeel. Nice.

angel77 (531) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en casa. Marzo 2013. De 2d2dspuma Toda un autentico Black Hole de sabor, envejecida en barril de cognac. Color negro negro intenso con espuma algo oscura no muy persistente quedando solamente ligero anillo. Aromas tostados y quemados con toques de lúpulo verde y acentuada presencia final de madera y licor Sabor bastante lupulado, verde con grandes toques de madera empapada en cogñac muy bien equilibrados Hasta ahora la mejor cerveza envejecida en cogñac que he probado, Una imperial stout bastante amarga y con el gran incentivo de las grandes notas de licor de cognac. Muy buena, imprescindible repetir de nuevo.

ansalon (949) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2013
Pours black as night with a low tan head. Aroma is booze, honey, muscovado sugar, cognac, dark red fruit, chocolate. Quite stringent and strong on the nose. Taste is honey, muscovado sugar, cognac, vanilla, esters, slight funk and chocolate. Mouthfeel is quite creamy yet somewhat sticky as well. Aftertaste is very alcoholic with tones of oak-aged grappa, honey, juniper berries. Very in your face and quite boozy, this will definately not be to everyone’s taste. Me, I quite like this!

Black, big brown head. Smells of cognac, coffee, roast and malts. Heavy sweet, cognac, oak, coffee and roast. Moderate bitter. Very nice. The cognac was the winner of the 5 we had in vertical tasting this evening

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2013
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and cognac. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a bitter, alcoholic finish.

Bottle shared by esp0r with me, Simonsen & Edvard, september 28th 2013. Black body, tiny brown head. Aroma is nicely balanced between the heavy roasted stout and cognac barrels, vanilla and dark fruits shine here. Taste is slightly alcoholic, lots of dark malt, vanilla, cognac and wood. Some chocolate too. Nice complex roast and vanilla finish.
