4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a dark brown tinge, and a dark brown head that disappears instantly.
Aroma: roasted, licorice, dark chocolate, creamy, sticky toffee.
Taste: chocolate liqueur, licorice, boozy, syrup, coffee, toffee, something else I can’t exactly pinpoint but recognize from some other high ABV stouts like Dark Horizon 3 and Tokyo* (I described it as red onions in DH3, and maybe it’s something like that).
This is too sweet really, but still pretty nice.
The Black tasting hosted by Kraddel 17/10/2017. Bottled 2013.
Aroma is nice roasted grain, cigartabacco, molasses, sweetness and damp wood. Taste is a tad sour which gives this 17,2% Imperial Stout a very drinkable quality. Nutty, coffee, roast, licorice, port. Palate is liqueur, full bodied and buttery. I ate this with a homemade Mikkeller Black 2017 infused pate! maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Either 2010 or 2011 vintage. Tasted blind. Thanks to Mike. Nose of rich chocolate, red wine, prunes, barrel, and a lot of alcohol fumes wafting up. Thick and slick black. Rich sweet chocolate, super-dark fruit concentrate, some soy sauce, and heaps of dark sugar, Very heavy body, and slick on the tongue. Massive flavors, very warming, Great blend of these three monster beers. klm1 (1785) - Bled/SF, - JUL 7, 2017
Pours black opaque with tiny light brown head, which transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Aroma: roastef grain, dark malts, sulphury notes as umami etc
....flavour is more intense and complex:roasted grain, malts with notes of caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, coffee, intense cacao, sulfury (umami, soy souce), sherry, brandy -like alcohol notes...finish is slightly sticky, dry, body is full, texture smooth, carbonation low.

Svart. I doften finns aningen rökt skinka, kaffe, mörka bär, lite honung. Smaken är supefyllig, lite rökt skinka, bärsötma med fin balanserande beska. Oerhört maffig och komplex öl, en riktig höjdare! (2012-01-07) dimeon (363) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 21, 2017
A: Black as the darkest midnight.
N: Dark bitter chocolate, rich chocolate mousse, orange peel.
T: Bitter and acidic, but this is absolutely necessary to cut through this squid ink of a drink. Citrus peel. Whisky. Biscuits, Soy sauce.
P: About as full as it can get.
O: It is almost impossible to envisage having two of these in a row, it is that intense. But as a single drink, it is hard to beat.

Black colour with brown foam. You cant really feel that the beer is 17,2 percent. A lot sweeter than expected. Achel (488) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, molasses, alcohol, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar and licorice. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a long very sweet, warming, chocolate and coffee finish. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat.
