GothGargoyle (2585) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
Deep black with a creamy golden brown head and noticeable viscosity. Aroma is treacle, wood, orange blossom, engine oil. Full bodied, viscous mouthfeel, starts lightly sweet but becomes bitter on the palate with a lightly boozy finish and a lingering harsh bitterness. Taste is burnt wood, dark fruits, treacle, roasted malts. A little harsh on the end.

willisread (3150) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Pitch black with a mocha colored head. Bit aromas of roasted malt, booze, cardamom and cacao with some light dried fruit and espresso. Taste is fruity and boozy hot. Pretty straightforward and not as complex as I would have hoped. A fun beer to share.

Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Aroma is spicy, boozy, roast. Taste is pretty good, heat, dark fruit, roast, chocolate, bitterness, touch of coffee, not much barrel. Touch of sweetness maybe. Nice.

Pitch black color. Light frothy brown head. Big sour nose with lots of Sauternes. Again very sweet mouth. With Sauternes but a bit one dimensional. Not bad

Taster showing pitch black and a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows dense bourbon notes and hints of vanilla. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Sweet flavors on the front and bourbon notes on the mid. The finish shows the alcohol burn and barely any bitterness on the finish.

Draft. Incredibly black in color -- none more black. Thick, sugary. One inch of froth the color of crumbled graham cracker is incredibly sticky, gumming up the sides of the glass and hanging out for an infinite amount of time atop. A sweet, rich nose mixes brandy, grape skins, plums, tobacco, bitter wet espresso and alcohol. The flavor may actually be TOO intense. Its very, very sweet, but mixed in there is incredibly bitter cacao, toasted oak and plum. The swallow delivers fruity grape and plum, some chocolate and a lingering coffee bitterness. Best drunk quickly, which gives a bit of fruity sweetness without much of the other flavors. The thick, full body is like drinking maple syrup. Some alcohol heat gets the tongue numb as Novocain. Mild, peppery carbonation. A ten-ounce snifter is too much of this one. While it is delicious, its also SO rich and sweet and boozy. The barrel-aging does seem to round off the harsher edges of the regular black, however, and the beer gets better and better as it warms -- wine and oak notes emerge more, and it actually tastes like a barrel-aged beer.
