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"

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 (8661) - 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.

500ml bottle, again graciously shared by Alberto (ippopotamo36) as the finale of our Belgrade tasting. Very dark brown-black. Small tan foam. Huge aroma, milk chocolate, black licorice. Licorice and bitter cocoa finish. Some hops come through as green herb. A very rich chocolate drink. Alc is surprisingly well hidden. Menthol warming. Raspberry chocolate up front, gets more complex as you sip.

Hvilken åpning på Mandag i annen! Dette fantastiske ølet ble brygget i 2011 og lagret i et år før det ble flasket i 2012. Vi var så heldige å smake på flaske nr. 685 (av 1650). Kullsort og med et ganske lite skum. En forførerisk og intens aroma av lakrisrot, solbær, vanlije, sjokolade, kaffe og mørk sirup setter forvetningene i førersetet. Forventningne innfris i rikelig monn, dette er på alle måter et stjerneøl.Rund, saftig og med en enorm fylde. En imperial stout på steroider, som Sigmund så treffende bemerker. De 14% merkes først i magen. Himmelsk sier Henning, og jeg er hjertens enig. Jeg fikk heldigvis en liten slant til helt på slutten av deenne flotte kvelden på Cardinal, og godt temperert var den en opplevelse.
