Draught. Creamy brown and lasting head. Pitch black body. Alcohol dominated cocoa creamy plum raisin aroma and flavor with low carbonation and a short afrtertaste. Too much taste of the alcohol for my liking.

Cuvée delphine on steroids. Immense flavour; all of the flavours of the base beer are there, but multiplied by ten. Would’t have guessed this was even close to 26% if I hadn’t known.

100ml, or so, nicely served in a cognac glass from tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Lasting brownish head to a body that was black as the devil. Dark roasted malty aroma along with a warming smell of bourbon. Grainy chocolate in flavour supported by prunes and black berries. Strong and oily textured, however, smooth and velvet on the swallow (Ølbutikkens grad tasting session, Copenhagen 06.11.2010).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 [9/24/10] Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Black with a thick creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee, some smoke and alcohol. Flavor of burnt coffee, some bitter chocolate, some fruitiness, alcohol and a very bitter finish. Full-bodied. Very good drinkablity for such a huge beer but a bit over the top.
