CBC 14. Pours black with an off-white head. Sweet with a light bitterness. Aromas of toasted malts and chocolate with hints of cask wood and caramel. Grassy hints. Medium to full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Bitter finish.

Bottle, aged for a year. Pours Very dark brown, close to black, with a fat, fine mocha head. Seems quite carbonated. Nose has nicely roasted and toasted malts, chocolate and molasses. Not much barrel character, though. Very smooth mouthfeel, half bodied, with lots of molasses and chocolate flowing over your tongue, yet a very slight hint of sherry fruitiness and a bit of heat from the cognac. The chocolate lingers for quite a while, and slowly turns a little ashy in the mouth, meant in the nicest way possible..

Koelschtrinker (15761) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 17, 2016
Dunkel malziger Antrunk, der durch hopfige Noten ausgebremst wird. Schokoladennoten sind zu einem geringen Anteil vorhanden, die Würzigkeit verharrt auf angenehmem aber noch ausbaufähigem Level. Ab dem späten Mittelteil trocken, etwas Kaffee. Gelungen. 10/11/11/11/8/11

Comprata in bottiglia a lo sfuso di Torino. Imperial porter con sentori di cognac. Barricata. Ma gusto poco persistente e un po troppo dolce.

Kolsvart med stort brunt skum. Doftar choklad, kaffe och fatlagring. Smaken är ganska söt med choklad och fat. Lite tunn men annars riktigt bra!

Nocturne (1677) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
375ml bottle. Black pour. Big brown head. Aroma has lots of barrel influence with wood and red grape notes, and there’s a strong coffee bean maltiness. Taste has a dry, chalky, roasty, liquorice vibe but also some sweet fruitiness. Good stuff but not really an improvement on the original in my view.

Bottle. Tasted two years ago. Very good beer, nice oaky and cognac notes, plus all the great stuff from regular black ball.

Lovely stuff. Thick, creamy, roasty and bitter like the regular Black Ball, with a hint of wood and cognac from the barrel aging. Delicious.

radzik5555 (635) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Butelka 0.375L.
Wygląd: Czarne z bujną beżową pianą.
Aromat: Intensywny aromat kokosa, lekka wanilia a w tle jak piwo podstawowe ale beczka dominuje aromat.
Odczucie: Wyżej wysycone i nie tak gładkie jak wersja podstawowa.
Smak: Palone, kokosowe, czekoladowe, alkoholowe, trochę bardziej ostre niż nieleżakowana wersja.
Całość: Bardzo dobra ale chyba gorsze niż wersja podstawowa. Piwo zyskało aromaty beczki ale też jest mniej ułożone.
