Tonkun's rating

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black pour with mocha head that leaves a nice thin layer. Espresso, dark cherries, chocolate, licorice, oak. Unbelievably smooth. Can use a spoon to drink this thick creamy body. Bitter but sweet and soft. Complex but not overwhelming even considering the 16.5% alcohol. Very good. A nice beer to relax and sip during a cold winter day.

ochniczek (326) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2017
tap at Mikkeller Bar (Copenhagen). pours dark, almost pitch black with frothy beige head. aroma is roastiness, hops, liquor, pralines and coffee, pleasantly complex. drinking that ris is pure pleasure as body is full and every sip makes you appreciate the complexity of that beer, must drink so to say.

bottle; 9 month Black colour, brown head. Aroma: malty, vanilla, chocolate. Full body, very sweet, high bitterness. Flavour: chocolate, red fruits/ esters, but finish dominates: bitterness, lots of roasted notes and even more terrible alcohol.

Aus der Flasche (bbe 2020-06) 2017-05 getrunken. Ein 黑 Black ist ein 黑 Black. Fetter geht es kaum noch. Die Süße fängt alle bitteren Röstnoten komplett ein und es ergibt sich ein dichtes, aber harmonisches Aromageflecht aus Kaffee, dunkler Schokolade und leichte Fruchtsäure. Je frischer ein 黑 Black ist desto mehr finde ich dort Blaubeeren, hier nicht. Es bleibt ein Stout ganz oben auf der Richterskala. Megageil!

Can at home. I’ve had this before on draft 2 years ago at Mikkeller in Shibuya, and it was a massive, complex beast of a beer. This is slightly less full, and less developed affair. I can see why it divides opinion. It’s a big impy stout, but it’s got a very burnt aroma, and a slightly tart, acidic edge to it which means it’s not your typical thick sugar laden impy which will put you off to sleep after half a glass. For me it has all the big impy features: thick mouthfeel, huge deep black hue, foamy tan head, but the aroma is more like a charcoal fuelled black IPA, and the taste is cut with something approaching a sour. I think it’s an astonishing beer.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2017 330ml can at 16.1%. Pours jet black with a huge tan head, eventually settling with nice lacing. Aroma: dark fruits, raisin, roasted malt, coffee. Taste: dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, sugar, very warming bitter finish, a bit astringent though. Full body, soft carbonation. Certainly a strong one, nice but I feel the astringency lets it down a bit, not a particularly pleasant aspect.
Rating #1000!

I want to warm up to this budget buster, but the backend on this thing is not desirable. Very astringent. I’m not even sure I like the front end. Yes... impressively hidden alcohol--neat trick--but the flavor profile is a bust for me. Damn you to hell on this on Mikkeller. I sold my car for 12.7 FL OZs of this stuff.

From can. Pitch black pour with a tiny tan head. Notes of licorice, ash, light smoke, some heavy roast, warming alcohol, bitter chocolate and light coffee.

Niller (1706) - Hammel, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2017
Can from Mikkeller Shop, Aarhus. Pours pitch black with a beige head. Aroma and taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, fruits. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily texture. Bitter warming finish. Nice.

vincentvega72 (726) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2017
Donkerzwart bier met dikke chocomousse-achtige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegzakt. Aroma en smaken van (pure) chocolade, leer, tabak, pruimen, donker fruit, honing-zoetje, tinteling op de tong en het tandvlees. Heel lange (koffie)bittere afdronk. Knaller van een stout !!!
