COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Mess was processed the double icebock way to proceed to 39% of Abv. This ale still drinks as a real beer, containing carbonation and a nice rocky head, the alcohol is very well hidden.

From old notes. From tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Black color with beige head. Aroma is malty, roasted, chocolate, alcoholic, some smoked notes. Sweet and biter like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Alcohol seemed like 15% not 39%!!

18/IV/15 - on tap @ Struise Schooltje (Oostvleteren) - BB: n/a (2015-449) Thanks to Fokke for the beer! Thanks to Bart and Jolien for driving!

Clear dark brown to black beer, small creamy beige to brown head, unstable, non adhesive. aroma: very peated, smoky, caramel, dried fruits. MF: soft carbon, full body, very thick, syrupy texture, almost chewable. Taste: caramel, very sugary, heavily peated, hoppy, some dark chocolate, pretty dry. Aftertaste: peated, caramel, sweet, bit of alcohol, more peat, pretty bitter and hoppy finish.

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. Thnx Urbain!

kappldav123 (5480) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2013
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!
