Bov (10123) - Bienne, - FEB 10, 2013
from Erzbierschof - black beer with an elusive dark beige foam; roasted malty nose with notes of nougat, earth, wood, alcohol and undefined spices; thick and full-bodied; pretty swet with a late and huge bitterness; slightly dry with long roasted malty notes, more nougat, caramel, wood and pralines

Zakoon (144) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2015
25cl bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours pitch black with a tiny brown head. Thick lacing. Aroma is clearly chocolate, coffee, alcohol, wood, tobacco and roasted malt. Flavour is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is smooth with a little alcohol bite. Lovely.

Vignale (2378) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2015
Flaska från SB. Helt kolsvart utan något skum alls. Riktigt tjock oljig vätska. Domineras av kräva, brända smaker och väldigt söta karamellsmaker. Jag saknar något däremellan samt cognacfaten. Annars maffig.

Lilja (1950) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av mörk choklad, kakao, bränt socker, rostad malt, karamell, lakrits, mörk torkad frukt som katrinplommon, dadlar och fikon, vanilj. Tjock, oljig konsistens, stor sötma, lätt beska. Saknar gick fatkaraktären, en aning mycket bränd smak, i övrigt mycket gott.

Jimthechap (1925) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 28, 2015
Black, black, black, black and black again. Oily, viscous and carrying a dark cream coloured head. The aroma of molasses, raw grapes and cider vinegar is just huge. Huge I tell you! A silky viscous mouthfeel, the beer poured like it was an oil sump being drained. This beer was every aspect of dark beer in excelsis and in ordinary circumstances ought to take an hour to drink. Wondrous.

beer-yum (749) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 23, 2015
A liquid licorice spectacular with hints of coffee and chocolate that manages to totally hide its strength. A dangerous brew - seriously dangerous.

jkwood04 (4438) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Tiny bottle in a teku. Pours black with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, dat yac and da barrel, a lot of dark chocolate, some notes of coffee and dark fruits, some notes of vanilla, and alcohol. Flavor the same with a very nice and complex blend, lots of roast, chocolate, and barrel. Smooth, thick texture with not a lot of carbonation, but enough. A really cool imperial stout.
