Bottle via queenholly. Pours a dark brown black little but of tan head. Aroma confusing. Yeasty notes, roasty, bourbon, wood. Body rich, thick, sweet, finish sweet vanilla notes very little warming for ABV.

Taster from a bottle shared at Natifest 2013. Very dark brown color. Nice thin light brown head. Good dots and short ropes of lace. Lightly chewy, bigger body. Dry finish. Light carbonation. Amazing for 14%... So much less noticeable alcohol taste than Dark Lord, I think this is way better, really. Way more good big dark roast, coffee, dark chocolate flavors. Nearly burnt, but I love the big roast. So amazing for 14%, don’t really get any hint of the alcohol. No sweet or warmth. Loved this, way more my style.

Bottle shared at natifest. Pours a date brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has figs and raisins over top of a licorice and dark coffee. I get a little bit of peanut butter and pistachio as well. The taste is a fairly dark sweet. Very nice.

750 ml bottle to taster (thanks shigadeyo). Looks good; cola with ample beige head. Smells and tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and roast with a smooth mouthfeel. Dangerously drinkable.

Bottle, huge thnx to Kraddel for sharing this @ Rampkrot tasting. Awesome looking bottle, yellow wax all over it. I was kinda sceptic about this to be honest, it’s hard to be objective about a whale this big. Once I started scribbling notes about this, I kept writing down that this was one amazing beer. A blend of 4 awesome brews, blended by one of the best brewers around.. wow. It pours a pitch black, syrupy beer with a small amount of tanned head on top. Aroma is of oak, molasses and licorice with hints of vanilla. Taste is simply amazing, you can define some of the characteristics of the ingredient beers. All well balanced and blended in a perfect form. Incredibly smooth drinking, nice balance between bitter and sweet, without getting to boozy. This is one of my best beers ever.

Thx to Kraddel@ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 65 cl. Bottle sampled. Yellow wax, regular awesome overkill wax as usual. Black only tanned / beige head on the sides. Nose is pungent light soy, mocha, liquorish, molasses, thick sugar, light bitter herbs,… Taste is bitter herbal coffee, soy, liquorish, meaty, bitter cold coffee, sticky sugar, syrup de Liege, sticky bark, light burn in the back, caramel mess,… Slightly sticky, less carb. The sum is way less than the total of the parts. Meh.
