Bottle, 13.0%. Sweet liquoricy aroma, hint of vanilla and plenty of pepper. Black colour, no head. Sweet liquorice flavour, plenty of alcohol. Good, but we have tried something like this before.

Fluffy, fully-dark clouded head over night-black beer (original, original wording, JPP!) Ink, and very very dark berries and other plumlike fruit - dried and preserved in whisky or rum. Black chocolate if ever tasted, with an enormous load of alcohol, in a nice, whisky-like way with a strange, but perfectly balanced fresh vanilla-like sweetness. Near solid oil. And yet a great balance. A winner, if ever MIkkeller brewed one.

Bottled. Thanks a bunch big time for sharing Pinball. Colour: black as the darkest night with a bubbly rather short lasting light brown head. Aroma of very roasty malt, dark fruits, choolate, woodish whiskey, mild smoke and alcohol. Very good mouthfeel. Very pleasant flavour of roasted malt, wood, chocolate, some whiskey, bitter hops and bit of pepper. Great brew indeed.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2008
(Bottled, 25cl, room temp) Black with a big-bubbly, beige head. Aroma of strongly roasted malt, some ash, alcohol presence evident, syrup, some licorice, saltiness. Very roasted-color-malty, but somewhat balanced with sweet, syrupy maltiness. Strongly warming, whisky-like alcohol, black coffee, some tannins. Long, ashy-burned aftertaste. Quite full-bodied - yet strangely thin, leaning towards hard liquours. Low carbonation. Sure, it has lots of flavor and aroma, but also too much ashiness and alcohol burn for me.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a huge creamy chocolate brown head. Slowly collapsing in big bubbles. Aroma is mild whiskey to a solid roasted malt and smooth chocolate aroma. Whiskey flavoured through another imperial stout variant of hard roasted malt, chocolate, mild bitterness and sweet - etc etc. Good evening sipper.

Bottle. High creamy and good looking brown head that unfortunatlely is disappearing quite quickly. Body of course black as the night. Coffee cocoa hops wood alcohol aroma. Alcohol though quite subdued. Flavor pretty carbonated coffee liquorice cocoa hops weed whisky, strong good and very long lasting. I would not have guessed the high alcohol percentage. To bad the botlle is only containing 25 cl.
