Best before 09/05/15, brewed 4y before
Black color, small sized brown head. Roasted malt aroma, quite mellow, with floral touch. Round mouthfeel, good flavor of chocolate and some roasted malt, moderate pleasant sweetness, and just a trace of alcohol.
Balanced, harmonious.

phaleslu (9251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2016
375 ml bottle purchased from The Wine and Cheese Place in 2010 or 2011. Opened blindly alongside all other variants. Pours a deep, nearly opaque dark brown with minimal tan head that settles into a ring. This one has notes of dark fruit, chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, honey, molasses - it’s very sweet compared to the others. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, smooth, coating mouthfeel. My guess was regular, given the lack of barrel character, but it was Tequila, which rocked everything I (and the others) were thinking for these.

Nickls (2335) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Tap. Less of a head, but still medium to dark tan in color on a opaque mahogany body. Sweeter agave notes; almost fruity; light chocolate and roasty aromas. Quite sweet in the flavor, dark fruits, prune, touch of vegetal agave, and the heat comes out a bit more in this version for me. Medium to thicker viscous body.

SlackerMads (2779) - DENMARK - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle 2010 edition thanks to pentaz. Dark brown close to black, tiny light brown head. Strange. Spicy, sticky sweet, white chocolate, wood. More sweet than bitter. Alcohol. Ok.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
375ml bottle from the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Deep black in colour with a thin tan head, good lacing. The aroma is quite sweet upfront, oak, some alcohol, vanilla and chocolate. The flavour is very sweet, oaky and woody, light alcohol, lots of chocolate, quite sugary. Very sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sweet and warm. This is a huge difference then the Cognac version. Intense sweetness and lots of oak.

kevinator (1850) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
This packed a punch. Strong aroma and flavor of roasted malt, molasses and tequila. Pitch black and viscous with a small head. Very smooth and thick with a heavy palate. Great but not an improvement on the original.

"a strange beast. nose is nice, all the ingredients in black hole and an additional sweet twang to it. still smooth as ever. starts out ok, but gets a little harder to drink by the end. maybe just too much going on. not bad, though."
