PotjeBier (3839) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2010
18 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours pitch black with little head. Aroma’s of wood, vanilla, whisky, smoke, soysauce, sweet malt, roast and alcohol. Taste is sweet ’n’ bitterish, roasted, with a hints of wood, whisky. Burning mouth (& throat-) feel, a bit too much for my liking. Roast and ash with some bitterness in the finish. Good, but could have done with a little less acolhol imho. stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010

The beer is dark brown and sports a thin, beige head. The beer appears viscous, leaving a sheet of oily lacing on the walls of the snifter.
The aroma offers oak, roast, tannins, dark fruit, malt, booze.
The flavor follows the aroma to a tee. Lots of dark fruit character, which, in most cases, I do not care for, finding it to be a deterrent. However, this beer has a lot of nice things happening, all of which compliment one another.
Low carbonation, thick and viscous, rich. A warming finish but alcohol presence is unobtrusive.
Overall, a very tasty beer. I would enjoy having this again. Recommended.

Sweet roasty chocolatey aroma with strong alcohol tones. Sweet, chocolatey and coffee-roasty with light wood tones and defined alcohol notes, definitely a touch of whiskey. 50belair (3701) - Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle thanks to darkguardian. Black pour with a faint tan head. Big whiskey and roasted malt aromas. The body is a little thin with all kinds of whiskey notes and undercurrents of coffee, bitter dark roasted malts, and caramel..

Bottle # 531 shared at one of gunnar’s top shelf beer tastings. Black with clear red edges and topped by a short lived creamy brown head. Molasses and alcohol among the aromas along with roasted notes and dark dried fruits. Sweet and alcoholic flavors with plenty of roasted notes and coffee. Full bodied and splendid!

De molen black Jack. Small nip bottle consumed at de molen... Pours a
dark cola brown, almost black, with a reddish tinge as you work
towards the outer rim. Little to non-existent head, more so a thin
ring of light beige film... Bourbon or whiskey woody nose with a
little peat, tobacco, and some bitter dark chocolate... Flavors are an
amalgamated combination of woodiness, chocolate, peat, and a soft
smoke. Sweet through the beginning and middle moving to a bittering
finish. Alcohol hits mid-palate and through the finish. Fairly warming
all around. Closer to thin than medium bodied. Carbonation provides
