A massive Imperial Stout. The first IS brewed by Revelation Cat. Aged for nearly a year in steel tanks and fermented out to 14% Bottled in 2012 in limited quantity and released slowly throughout the following years. On the bottle: "Black Knight’s sure you’d love to know. But you’re just gonna have to find out ’Cause you’re not gonna get the recipe on the freakin’ bottle And beware of the 14% He’s gonna mess with you" "Keep it Cool and age this beer"

MotherBrother (898) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2014
Pour oily black, with thin tan head and a brownish hue. Aroma has some chocolate, cacao powder, caramel, slight licorice, syrup. Taste is pretty sweet, with a faint bitterness, but is dominantly sweet. Slight alcohol burn in the throat, but not like 14% media bodied, with a flat carbonation. Slightly pricking on the tongue, probably from the good ol’ booze.

RasmusOtt (2323) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2014
Pours black with a tiny brown lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, sweet ripe fruits, caramel, syrup and vanilla. Big and smooth imperial stout smell. The taste got some sweet liquorice, dark cocoa, molasses, syrup, dark sweet fruits and a rather savory end. The body is rather flat. Extremely well done! Where is the 14% in this exactly?

Bottle @ "Schouskjelleren", Oslo. June 10, 2014. Bottle 642 of 1650 produced. Beer enjoyed from a Snifter glass. Dark brown to black in color with no head and little carbonation. Sweetness and roasted malt up front. Aroma is also dark fruit,coffee,dark sugar and a bit alcohol. Sweet and malty brew with a nice bitter finish. Very nice beer i will re-taste when or if possible.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This luxurious sipper weaves a complex web of flavours spanning from molasses, dark chocolate, blackberry fruitiness, roasted coffee beans and resinous hop bitterness, in a silky, rich mouthfeel licked by alcohol heat.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the pure black.
-This is complex and has no dominating flavors.
-Vinous moments work very well with the monster’s residual sugars.
-Warm temperatures make it become decadent.

3-year-old bottle.

Bottle @ Voldby. Jet black pour with a tiny beige head. Nose has ground coffee, light tartness, some dark chocolates and some ash. Taste has a light tartness lingering, vanilla and licorice. Has some port vibes to it.
