UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 how can i say what i wanna make clear by this...
let me put it this way, if you wanna know perfection, stop searching and drink this !
i was so impatient to drink this ( it had been a rosethorn in the eye for months) so i finaly decided to open it with my dad. first time ever i got speachless. waw. lets not hide it, im a fan of the normal hal en verdoemenis as well, so my expectations where far to high to be healty. and this beer, well, it just CRUSHED my expectations, becouse it was even so much better !
now, how does it taste?
to begin , its black. pure black, pure awsomeness. it has a little foam, not to much though.
the scent is just waaw already.
the taste.. wel, take a hel en verdoemenis, and isolate all the perfect elements , you’ll get this beer !
above is the 2011 version, drank midway 2012.
the new batch ( bottles 5th of december 2012) drank 31-12-12 / 01-01-13 .
less carbonation ( too little even) maybe the biottle? roasted malts, coffee, bitter, ,cognac, chocolat, heavy mouthfeel, thick, high alcohol , yet realy drinkable. still, again, this is perfection ! bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
May need spiritual cleansing after this number of the beast. Been saving this for REVIEW #666 for some time now. Bottle from Sherbrooke 10%. Black as sin (indeed fitting) with almost no tan cap. Aroma is heavy roast malts,chocolate, espresso, mild currant notes,Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, very mild sweetness of currant, raisin, mild smoky/woodiness. For 10%, the alcohol burn is less pronounced than expected. Spawned to be released... manisthebeer (246) - squamish, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
PERFECT FIVE EXACTLY WHAT I WANT IN A BEER!!! beautiful enticing whiskey/bourbon smell with almost a soft sweetness pours so slow and thick litterally tearing away at the glass as you pour it leaves little to no head almost delicious chocolate color and finally the taste so soft and creamy with mild to sharp stikes of liquor but blended so well with the stout you almost want more with very subtle whiskey after burn a real remakable beer you guys rule MBarni (13) - SPAIN - MAR 13, 2014

Bottle @ Monks in Stockholm! Ar the label it stands # 14/11-2011:
Black colour, with a nice creamy brown head. Aroma dominates of vanilla, caramelly, dark Choclate,coffee,alcy, raisins, some woody nes in the ned was there to. Flavor had a nice smouth mouth feeling of caramellynes mixed with vanilla and raisins, alcynes was there to, but had a nice balanced effeckt, fruity and citrus was there to. Big body, long mixed finish of chocolate and coffee. Well done! Ilian (5) - - JUN 11, 2013 does not count
Pitch black pour with almost no head. Taste is roasted malts, liquorice, coffee, chocolate and earth. Fantastic beer! Deep and complex. Can’t get the taste out of my mouth...and that’s okay for me. daknole (11047) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Bottle from noize. Amazing beer. Oily black pour with a wonderfully creamy brown head. Aroma is loaded with chocolate, rich coffee, vanilla, creme brûlée, toffee, molasses, raisins, dates, brown sugar and more! Rich flavor...it’s like drinking the best imperial stout mixed with the best coffee and chocolate ever made. Simply stunning. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 19, 2011
