Warming, pungent, sweet notes from the skies. His heart is beating slowly, almost endlessly slow. This man is thought to be invincible!

ContemplateBeer (1755) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Aroma of substantial coffee, bitter chocolate and bright, fruity esters. Appearance is opaque black with sticky mocha head. Flavor of bitter chocolate, bright fruits and a dry, bitter coffee finish. Palate is medium, oily and soft. Pretty awesome, IMO; there’s just something a little thinnish about the mouthfeel that kept this from legend for me.

stefannilssons (1541) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2013
Oj, vad det här är bra. Ölen är svartare än min själ med en komplex smak av syra, choklad, torkad frukt och vanilj. Dessutom var ölen välbalanserad och kändes underbar i gommen.

Bottle .375 @ w-k/freda. Black, tan head. Heavy dried & roasted coffee beans on nose, dry licorice, sweet molasses. A bit of milky oaky vanilla. Body is full, smooth, quite easy going. A bit fluffy, some chocolate milkshake- like characters. Flavourful, but not oily or too heavy though. Dry, long, finish.
