25cl, as Mikkeller ’Whisky Barrel Black as the Night’, retired exclusive Danish brew, thx alot to Philip for bringing this over!, very complex Stout, roasted/woody and slightly spicy/alcoholic/vinous, not too heavy, balanced, yet some notes of oxidation, hazy, small head, very good brew, yet expensive!

jesperhammer (2843) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2013
16-OCT-2013, draft @Mikkeller & Friends. Black, dense with lacing light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, herbs, vanilla, oak, peat. Taste the same. Very complex. Whisky somewhat mellowed down. Full body, soft carbonation. Slightly astringent. Long roasted aftertaste. Alcohol is present. Fine brew but a sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2013
Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, bread, and alcohol, leading to a very dry and roasted finish. Over the top for me

Svesse (6045) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2012
(Bottle, purchased at Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, a couple of years ago) Pitch black colour with frothy, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of strong black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, dried fruit, raisins in rum and hints of oak wood and whisky. Roasted, malty taste with strong sweet espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, oak wood, vanilla, whisky and a warming finish with a touch of alcohol and hints of dried fruit. Full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, fairly sweet. Quite powerful in most aspects, but still well balanced and very tasty. Lovely beer!

laiti (5573) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2012
25 cl bottle vintage 2008 @ Beer Hunter’s, 31.12.2012
Aroma has some bourbon, woody notes and some vanilla. Flavour has stinging, somewhat sour bourbon, some wood, licorice and hints of ash. Good, but too strong on woody and bourbon notes. Worse than the Coal version.
