250 ml bottle. Black body with a fine, dense beige head. A nice roasted malt aroma, coffee, a hint of liquorices and mild peated whisky. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, roast, chocolate, coffee, hops and whisky with peat and salt. Very long and smooth finish. A masterpiece.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Little bottle shared by Nick3 on BA.
Pours pretty damn black with a small brown head and good lacing. The head on this one really is dark.
Aroma is awesome - smells like burning! Roast, chocolate, and coffee. Not much whisky here.
A little more whisky on the flavor. Roasted malt, ash/charcoal, dark chocolate, and serious coffee. Amazing flavor, so intense.
Full-bodied and rough on the palate with drying roasty ashiness. Major alcohol warmth.
Like the Sherry Black as Hell, this was awesome overall. Huge thanks to Nick for sharing this rarity.

Black colored brew. Very nice aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, whiskey, oak/wood, some sweetness. Flavor is great too, creamy, thick malty, roasted, subtile whiskey tones, some fruits and oak. Great, balanced brew, love it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from KimJohansen (thanks Kim!). Pours black...as the night...with a huge rush of dark tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, some chocolate, peanuts, and perhaps a tinge of whiskey, though it’s not coming out all that much. Taste is roasted malts, more evident whiskey, raisins. Mouthfeel is pretty oily and slick. Finish is hot and raisiny. A good effort for sure.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Tnx, thewolf for reserving this one for me at Olbutikken. The aroma is wonderfull. It has chocolate, roast, wood, vanilla, some whiskey and fruity port-like notes. Quite creamy. Black coloured beer with a frothy (!) fluorescent dark brown head. Great looks. The taste is roasted, has chocolate some coffee, overripe fruits and some whisky and wood. The whisky is well balanced in this one and there is no massive peat. Full bodied beer and quite some carbonation for this style. I really enjoyed this beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A black colored beer, with a dark beige head, with big bubbles. The aroma of smoke, with fruit and chocolate malt and notes of wood. The taste of bitter chocolate with smoke moving over to whisky and alcohol in the back it’s dry. The aftertaste is dry and bitter with alcohol.
