Totally pitch black. Insanely boozy....tobacco. Well, this is a ’mess’ insane! Like a campfire, smoked chocolate, marshamallows, a lot of rye and bourbon whiskey. some tree-nuts, maybe walnut/almonds. very interestin but also very extreme. Double Black is ’balanced’ compared to this :)

Messy in the making, about 30%, straight from the barrel @ Schooltje. Black color. Dark head (not much). Aroma’s: whisky-ish, alcohol, sweet, wood, licorice/drop, something herbal? Flavor is like licorice, droppig, moderate sweet, somewhat salty. Very strong alcohol feel. Dense mouthfeel, syruppy. Not there yet, but anyway a bit over the top for me.

Biggest want now finally happening. Pours jet black with a small, dark head. Smell is intense peat, yet still in the ok zone to me.
Taste is peat, byt also dark malts and bitterness. Very balanced. Drinks like a 10 percenter, wtf? Acxording to Urbain, because of the temperature. To me this is juat proof yet again of great brewing skills. What a mouthfeel! Perfect carbo, intense and long lasting aftertaste. Even though it is to peated for my taste, i can only commit that i secretly do like it. If obly it were for the experience and the mouthfeel of it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at CBC2012. Deep black in the glass, very small head. Heavy malty and alcoholic aroma. Starts extremly malty, strong, alcoholic. Intense malty-earthy notes. Notes of strong coffee. Burning finish. All in all a bit too much, should be more balanced. I liked the Double Black more.

From nites - tap at Borefts 2011. Incredible - complex aromas of whiskey coming through through the alcohol scents and taste and mouthfeel of a beer. Incredible twist of beer into something totally different while keeping all attributes of beer. Nice!
