Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Thanks kermis! Opaque pitch black color, virtually no head. Aroma has malts, some sweetness, lightly wood, loads off vanilla. Taste malts, chocolate, lightly sweetness, wood, lots of vanilla again, decently bitter. Lovely beer but for me too much vanilla.

Vaiz (3275) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s Winter Shelter Tasting @ ABCBeers. Black pour. Aroma is full of roasted malts, bourbon, leather, chocolate, caramel and creamy. Flavor is very full bodied, roasted, chocolate and quite sweet but very well balanced and amazingly drinkable. Lovely brew.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Flaska. Delar med Isabel och avslutar födelsedagen. Hade glömt bort den här rackaren när jag dyker ner i källaren för att rota fram något att avsluta kvällen med. Minst ett topp-50 kryss lär man ju bocka av när man fyller år. Förväntningarna var dock inte så höga med tanke på att Mikkeller aldrig riktigt imponerat på mig på så vis att jag ramlat av stolen i häpnad av ölperfektion. Den här känns dessutom mest som en kul experimetbärs. Men ack så fel jag hade. Helt fantastisk och underbar. Förmodligen passade det perfekt med att vi redan druckit en hel del innan och trubbat av smaklökarna lite för alkoholen är inte det minsta spritig. Ovanligt mycket fikon och dadlar i doften. Smaken kan nog mest liknas vid flytande choklad och ren kakao. Blytung men samtidigt i bra balans. Påminner mig mest om Chocolate Rain men utan bourbon (Inte testat Black Tuesday ännu, troligen mer lik den då kanske). Ingen slurry. Tveklöst det bästa Mikkeller gjort. Och det vågar jag påstå eftersom jag testat allt från Mikkeller... -----&# Rerate: Torkade frukter dominerar denna härliga imp-stout. Fin sötma i balans. Fikon, russin och dadlar. Tung och riktigt bra. Håller lätt många år till. Inga tecken till att ha åldrats. Skulle kunna fungera till en snygg efterrätt med tex tryffel eller annan kul choklad.

Black, brown head. Chocolate and fudge. Sweet chocolate toffee. Bitterness builds in finish. Sweetness builds with an alcohol burn

jesperhammer (2835) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
14-NOV-2013, draft @Mikkeller, Black Sensation night. Black with high tan head. Aroma is cocoa. Very sweet. Taste is cocoa as well. Other stuff reveals itself after a while but cocoa still dominant. Coffee and chocolate plus alcohol. Extremely sweet, extremely full body. Too sweet in the long run but fantastic.
