Traded, corked 37.5cl bottle. Pours oily black with almost no head or carbonation. Just a few brown bubbles. Big aroma of licorice, molasses, vanilla, and prunes. Huge flavor of dark fruit, then sweetness in the middle and finishes with coffee. Long lasting after-taste that’s a little heavy on the raw booze. It was okay but nothing I’d try again.

Bottle at the 5th Annual Epic Beer Tasting in Richmond, VA, November 28, 2010. Pours a near black color with a thin head. Mediocre retention and lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malts, smoke, coffee and apple-like fruit notes. The taste is caramel, roasted malts, bitter hops, brown sugar. Medium bodied. irishalky (35) - Littleton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours dark and thick with minimal head, like it’s big brother Black Hole. Lacks some of the sophisticated flavors of Black Hole. SirLimpsalot (4451) - SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2010
Mörk” doft och nästan inget skum.
Härlig tjock och oljig. Ganska stärk och stor tydlig fat-karaktär (även om detta är den ursprungliga och inte från barrel aged-serien)
Smaken består av en aning söt lakrits och stark kaffe, och ger en (mycket) het och extremt lång eftersmak. Så gott så gott. jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle shared with jimbowood. Pours black and thick like motor oil. No head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste has strong alcohol flavor. Too much booze. Was hard to drink. Like port wine. Heavy, boozy, and not the kind of beer to tailgate with before a game.

11/5/10. Shared at S3. Lightly roasty aroma with tons of booze on it. Hugely sweet flavor full of brown sugar, rum, dark fruits, and more. Reminds of roasty dessert wines and liquers. mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Courtesy of drowland. Pours a pitch black, smell of a little grain alcohol. Taste is sweet, alcohol front and present. Something worth getting used to. I think I found myself drinking more of the bottle than anyone else, it grew on me. thornecb (6022) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Pours...black into a snifter. Tan head quickly recedes to nothing. Roasted chocolate aromas. Thin with sweet hot chocolate upfront with a long alcohol burn. Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Aroma is chocolate chip cookies, coffee, booze. Lots of creamy, huge, healthy head for a 16%er. Lacing is great. Tons of booze, burns as it finishes.Thick molasses flavor, extremely sweet with a pleasant floral hop finish. Lots of complexities...worth the price tag. There’s enough alcohol in this beer to kill a small petting zoo. kschep (1707) - DENMARK - OCT 24, 2010
