On tap @ Beer Temple, had to try that of course. Snifter glass. Color is - well.... Very dense almost brown head. Aroma’s that boast out of the glass: Sweetness, roast, soysauce, mocca, alcohol, wood (?), liquor. Flavor is very sweet with notes of wood, earth, roast. Very full bodied, oily, syruppy. Alcohol is strong but is covered up quite well by the sweetness & body. Long lasting finish with mocca, sweet coffee, ash and some bitterness. Geokkjer (7663) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2010

(375ml bottle) I opened this today in honour of the birth of my son, Owen, and the strongest, most determined woman I know - my wife - whom brought him into this world. Purchased at Brewery Creek in Vancouver on November 26, 2010. Pours a thin, quick dissipating head atop an opaque body. Nose of iodine, sweet Indonesian Soya Sauce, Sam Adam’s Triple Bock, the fresh sleeve of a young cigar and molasses. Very tingly on the tongue, the sugars and alcohol dance. Some underlying cherries and huge acidity. Ash burns, licorice and hoppy citrus round out this beer. Very good but over the top and no distinct character. I cannot tell if its confused or myself... but I’ve had 4 hours sleep over the last 48 hours so perhaps its me. BelgianBeerGal (4243) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2010
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.

Pours dark and thick with minimal head, like it’s big brother Black Hole. Lacks some of the sophisticated flavors of Black Hole. SirLimpsalot (4696) - 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 (761) - 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. drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2010
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.
