Bottle. Still quite alcoholic, nice sweet vanilla notes, light roastiness and caramel, boozy notes of tequila. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Interesting. mR_fr0g (13978) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle thanks to Daniel Osprey. A dark black with a ruby red by hues. Aroma is boozy woody whiskey, sweet boozy malts jammy fruits. Flavour is composed of sweet malts, toffee, bitter black, boozy cake, hot alcohol, solvent, black malts. . Lingering harsh bitter black malts. Palate is sweet, full, sticky, moderate carbonation. Big and bold. Closer to a spirit than a beer. The_Osprey (9670) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
375ml bottle at home in Richmond as ’Mikkeller 黑 Black Tequila/Speyside Edition’, 18.8%, bottled in June 2012. A thinnish pour to form an opaque black beer with a foamy light brown head. Aroma is mega-meaty bovril and burnt beef to start, moving to vanilla, dark chocolate and chocolate fudge, then spicy tequila. Sticks at tequila. Body is medium, a touch frothy with tingly carbonation. Very well-carbonated for 4 years old. Taste is pretty huge. Crazy woody, spicy tequila. It’s like a mouthful of hops, perfume and oak chips. Very dry with a lasting breathy after-taste. Throat-numbing. The booze is totally hidden amongst the intense flavours. An absolutely ridiculous beer, and more intense than most spirits. Fun to try but the drinkability is only just crunching into first gear. I think I’d really like it if it were a bit more restrained. haukur (2124) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - NOV 15, 2016
backlog. Bottle. Pitch black, loads of heat in the aroma, oaky, smoke, roast, slight hint of vanilla. Barrel notes with a hint of sweetness. Very nice considering the booze bomb. Zlotta (4139) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Pitch black with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and some hazelnut. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and some hazelnut, followed by a medium long, moderately warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

(Mikkeller 黑 / Black (Tequila/Speyside Edition)) Bottle 375 ml, received a couple of years from Cuso, thanks Imro! Served into a snifter, ABV 18.8!
Dark brown to almost black colour on the body, not as thick a pour as I expected. Head is light beige in colour, one finger in size and thin, with average retention.
Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, whiskey. Light iodium, more medicinal alcohol, faint wood. You can get tipsy by the aroma alone.
Sweet and very boozy taste, with indeed tequila and lots of whiskey, it’s like you’re taking shots of one after each other. Some dark fruits underneath, light roasted malts and bitterness.
Medium thick body with soft carbonation, sticky on the palate and a warming feeling on the body.
Too harsh of a beer, I had a full glass but it’s boozy character makes it hard to even finish a taster. Gluepot (755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 Very little carbonation or head. Thin consistency but some rich taste features, including berries, chocolate, alcohol warmth and some sourness. Less than you would expect at 18.8% abv
