4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and Vanilla. Sweet flavor that ends up with some bitterness and an alcohol bite. Medium to full bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A great impy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black. Soy sauce and dark fruit dominated aroma with heavy roasted malts and cold old coffe. Flavor is insanely heavy and sweet with roasted coffe notes barley balacning the sugary sweetness. Smooth bodied nice sipper indeed but more sugary and extreme than sophisticated and complex.

1-2 year aged bottle of this got busted out at a tasting years ago. I can’t remember specifics at this point except that the 5 or 6 of us that were there were rather impressed how all these different flavors somehow blended as well as they did. Definitely recommend aging it for at least a year or two.

Sample at CBC 2013, Saturday. Black with a creamy tan head. What a great beer this is! Incredible smooth and drinkable. Heavy but soft in the same time. Cocoa, vanilla, some coffee, roasted malt and syryp. Sweet but very, very nice!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session II. Pours oily black with a strong, brown foam cap. Lots of syrupy chocolate in the aroma, some vanilla. Hugely sweet flavor, lots of chocolate candies, burnt sugar, vanilla cream. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Syrupy. Moderately warming finish, tons of sticky dark sugars, more chocolate syrup. Rich, very, very, very sweet. Decadent stuff but getting through more than a few ounces would be a chore.
