Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - NOV 11, 2012
0,25l bottle as gift from Denmark. Opaque, black color with medium, creamy, dark brown head, which disappears quickly. Sweet, alcoholly odor followed by roasty, smoked malt flavours. The aroma is incredibly smoky and roasty. At the beginning itís sweet and caramelly, but after the firs impressions itís dry and tastes like a roast pork. Itís definitelly made with a lot of smoked malt, which causes this meet flavour. It must had a lot of chocolate malt too which makes the color so black, but it doesnít make the beer sour and bitter. Alcohol and honey flavours also appears. Dry, intensive and complex taste, nothing can dominate, but all the three basic flavours (sweet, sour, bitter) appears. Full bodied with oily texture and light carbonation. Roast pork finish. Itís an interesting beer. Surprisingly complex, incredibly oily and full bodied. This beer is dominated by the malty flavours, and from this view itís the opposite of the Mikkeller Black Hole, which is a "hoppy imperial stout". Itís a concentrated beer, 25cl is totally enough. The alcohol content isnít too high, and it canít be felt as dominant in the aroma. The texture, the body, and the malty flavours make this beer this rich and concentrated.

glennmastrange (2650) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Bottle. Heavy dark chocolate, molasses, and toasted for the malt, moderate aromas of resin and herbs for the hops, and earth for the yeast, with notes of burnt, vanilla and licorice. Head is small, wispy, brown, with a ring of lacing and good legs and is almost fully diminishing. Color is black. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweetand harshly bitter. Palate is full, syrupy with a soft carbonation and a sticky and lightly alcoholic finish. 16 Super thick, super rich Imperial Stout, which hides the 12.12% well. Nice to sip it like Fernet Branca.

Gearz (62) - Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2016
Small tan bead of head around the glass. Looks like coffee that has set on the burner all day. Black as onyx. Smells boozy as hell with notes of chocolate and leather. Good astringency on the tongue with a super thick mouthfeel. This is right there with ToØl's Goliat, Evil Twin's Imperial Biscotti Break and probably better than Mikkeller's breakfast beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hackobock (3411) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
March 29, 2016. Bottle, best before April 28, 2024.
Black with a small, lasting, brown head. Aroma is inky and roasted with ash, cocoa, hints of coffee, some soy and salty licorice, sweet notes in the background of dark berries and toffee. Taste is medium sweet but dominated by a quite intense bitter roastiness. Finish is sweet blackberries and toffee, salty licorice and soy notes, dry bitter dark chocolate, roasted coffee. Medium to full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation.
Too heavy on the roast and salty notes.
