arone12 (935) - Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Pours a black color. Weird. Wouldn’t have guessed that from the name. No head from this pour at all. Smells of chocolate, alcohol, and a smidge of bourbon. Tastes like wood and chocolate. Dry mouth feel. Doesn’t taste 17.5 percent alcoholic.

scottw86 (1180) - Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Poured black with almost no head. Aroma of chocolate and scotch. Also lots of dark fruit with raisins. Taste is quite strong with lots of wood. A good amount of yeast flavors add some complexity. Finish is very good. Lots of chocolate and brown sugar with coffee. Overall very flavorful, but a little too much alcohol.

Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2011
Dark brown with no head. Peat and medicinal herb aroma. Slightly oily, sweet thick palate. Could be overwhelming and small amounts is recommended. A very nice beer in small amounts.

Rasmus40 (22174) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
Black with a big dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate and lots of alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish with warming alcohol. Oily. Too much alcohol for my liking. 170711

Bottle @ Pannuhuone, Kuopio. Originally rated on 28.11.2009. Boozy and soy sauce like imperial stout, alcohol burns through way too much.

Camons (13523) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Tap @ Fairbar. Pours black with a weak tan head, lots of lacings on the glass. Aroma of hard roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is very hard roasted ( allmost burned ) malt, coffee, dark bitter chocolate, vanilla. Full body, no carbonation long sweet and alcoholic finish. Strong, extreme and even brutal, but i liked it alot. 180310

Bottle courtesy of MesandSim. As usual, you continue to light up my (beer) life. I love imperial stouts. Especially ones that have huge knackers like this. Blacker than Darth with big bubbled thin tan head. Massive crazy wacky bonkers aroma of coffee and dark chocolate, alcohol bubbling away in the background but I always swear by the strong stuff. Brown sauce notes. Enormous big massive huge finish. Everything is to the extreme. That’s the way the weasel rolls...

vyvvy (6857) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Pours motor oil black with a small brown ring of head on clinging to the side of the glass. Roasted malt, soy sauce, dark fruits, alcohol, apples, sweetness and minor cocoa. Full slick body with only a hint of carbonation. The taste starts off with lots of sugary sweetness, molasses, green apples, cocoa, soy sauce, alcohol warmth and rum-like qualities. The finish has harsher alcohol and dark fruits, but the lingering taste in the mouth is high in alcohol and char. Glad I tried this once, but that will be enough.

after having tried their black hole, I kinda knew what to expect from this non-carbonated "beer". At 17.5% this doesn’t taste or drink like a beer at all. Ridiculously potent, on the the nose are intense roasted malts mixed with a traceable (vodka) ethyl alcohol burn. Thick viscosity, ultra-full bodied, flavours of light roasted coffee, caramel, molasses, and charcoal, and a long bitter finish. Definitely a plethora of taste activations going on but all dark, aggressive and biting. It’s hard to enjoy this if you’re expecting a typical carbonated beer as opposed to this potent coffee syrup of a liquid. Not my thing.

georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2011
Black with minimal to no head. No carbonation sign when I open the bottle. Aroma is alcohol, grapes, vanilla, malt. Full body with low carbonation. In mouth is very chocolate, caramel, candy like, little fruits, vanilla. Finish is a long and smooth sweet and warming taste of chocolate and alcohol. OMG !
