4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours deadly, oily black with a lively, creamy beige foam head. With just the slightest of swirls the beer comes back to life with the head as good as new. The aroma does not suggest the beer is as strong as it is. There are certainly notes of whiskey, but the intensity is less than I’d expect. Also notes of vanilla, burnt cocoa, wood and lots of dark, ripe fruits in the nose. The flavor makes you believe in the 15%. It is very sweet, yes, but there’s also a boozy sting that hits you right away. Once you get beyond the strong alcohol, there is some nice burnt wood character, along with raisins, dark cocoa, licorice, and mild peat. Full, full in body with fine tot average carbonation. Hot finish with the booze really stinging the teeth and all. There’s a long, oaky and burnt malty finish as well, highlighted with sugary, dark and ripe fruits, licorice, alcohol, prunes, light tobacco, earth, moss, dark sugars, toffee and molasses. This is a HUGE beer. A 1/3 of a pint is almost too much, but that’s what I’ve got. I do enjoy it, but now, afterr three beers in this pub on a warm Sunday afternoon, I am ready to go home.
Líquido negro opaco com tons café, forma uma fina camada de espuma marrom. Aroma predominantemente doce, remetendo a maltes tostados, café, chocolate amargo, com notas de ameixa em caldas e um leve defumado (e um pouco alcoólico). Em boca é complexa: encorpada e viscosa, começa doce mas é seguida de um final seco e amargo, novamente remetendo ao tostado e café. Sentem-se, ao final, notas de aveia e baunilha, além do álcool - bem equilibrado para uma breja de 15% ABV. Retrogosto tostado e amargo prolongado. O aroma me lembrou a breakfast stout da founders, mas com notas de whisky, q se revelam no sabor à medida em q a temperatura sobe. Aroma tb lembra o bailey"s.

Shared by Craig, October 1, 2016. Thanks for this one. If anyone finds I have misplaced this rating, please let me know. Black beer, black, moderate smoke in the aroma. Roasted malt and lots of sugar, dry oak, some more whisky in the flavor. Great palate, thick and heavy. One of the best beers I had while in Britain. danlo (3189) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016

Taste is dark malty, sweet, brown sugar, chocolate, roasted, coffee, nutty, with raisins and earthy whisky notes. Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry warm boozy finish. Nice, very drinkable. nilsas (4469) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2016whaturtle (11) - - MAY 19, 2016

Lotto 447, Best before 23/12/2016, aperta il 13/03/2016.
Praticamente nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma tra ocra e nocciola non molto persistente che forma un anello in superficie lungo la parete del bicchiere.
Aroma di toffee, whisky meno evidente che in altre versioni ma comunque ben presente, vaniglia, salsa di soia, liquirizia meno in evidenza, amarene sotto spirito, note legnose, rabarbaro.
Al palato toffee, whisky, liquirizia, zucchero bruciato, finale legnoso misto a polvere di caffè, cioccolato fondente, rabarbaro ed erbaceo.
Corpo pieno, bassa carbonazione, corposa ed oleosa, buon equilibrio. redtechnj (315) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Appearance- Thick, creamy black with a pillowy light brown head. Not long lasting and little to no lacing.
Aroma- Heavy malt, chocolate, soy sauce, slightly metallic, smoke.
Flavor- Very sweet, almost cloying, molasses, wood, smoky but in an ashy kind of way, bitter finish. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - JAN 23, 2016
To sweet and heavy bodied, but not bad at all. Malts, chocolate, to much sugar... Barrelbelly (750) - BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2016
Black with no head. Whisky aroma. Full bodied flavour with wood, whisky and warm alcohol finish.
