Bottle split at the 42nd floor Tasting, thanks to Daniel, 08/10/15. Pitch black with a decent tan covering. Nose is big malt dollops, rich roast, spice, dark chocolate, bitter dark fruit shreds, umami, tar, booze fumes. Taste comprises bourbon, spice, big barrel effect, dark toffee fudge, rich malt, chocolate. Full bodied, oily complexion, herbal trace and warming alcohol in the close. Solid impy, best from this series for me, boozey beast but not too hot.

Leighton (19494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 Bottles shared in London, 42nd floor tasting - thanks to Daniel! Pours oily black-brown with a creamy tan head. Massive aroma, lots of burnt brown sugar, roast, dark fruits. Medium sweet flavor, loads of torched wood, baking cocoa,dried fruits, raisins. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Hot finish, some burn works its way into the nostrils, iodine, drying ashy wood, earth. So so. A bit too hot and bitter, but there are some interesting elements.

Ez egy csodlatos főzet. A hords rlels sajtsgos karaktert klcsnz, ami jl megklnbztethetőv teszi a "sima" Black főzettől. Ebben az italban a pirtott rpa nagyon szp hangulatot ad, kirződik a csokolds harmnia s a kvs zvilg. Ehhez enyhe fstssg is prosul mg s egy erőteljes whisky-s aroma, hatrozott alkoholossggal. desks, lassan kortyols, igazi nyencsg. NYAMI!!!

Bouteille 37.5cl, BB 16/02/2022. Brune fonce, col pais crmeux moka, dor au verre. Arme au bouquet profond de malt, note barrique, le tout est surfait au niveau alcool qui est bcp trop prsent, pointe de vanille avec un rtro bois et grains Au palais, le tout est incroyablement fort en alcool. Les 19% dnaturent compltement la bire, apportant un profil bcp trop rchauffant et par moment rappelant un cot pic qui en fait ne lest pas. Retrouve une certaine douceur vanille et un bois caractristique du Makers mais dont toute lapprciation est gche par ce niveau alcoolis. Au final, bcp trop de booze, et cela tue lintrt de cette bire. Pour le prix, franchement du.

Botella de 37.5 cl de zombier en llamas en el momento el 13-09-2014 Fecha de consumo pref para antes de 16-02-2022. color negro intenso con espuma bastante oscura que desaparece hasta quedar solamente fina capa. Aromas intensos de bourbon con maltas tostadas y vainillas junto con maderas empapadas de licor. Cuerpo intenso bastante ligero y licoroso gracias a sus 19.3 vol que dan gran sensacin alcohlica. Sabores intensos de maderas empapadas en bourbon con toques de maltas tostadas, algo de cacao u especias, vainillas, y maderas licorosas. Muy buena con una tremenda sensacin de licor gracias a su dosis alcohlica y su paso ligero por boca.

kappldav123 (6013) - GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
Huge thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small brownish head. Heavy-malty and alcoholic aroma. Starts very, very intense malty, notes of strong coffee, some bitter cacao chocolate, woody-scratchy notes. Hints of liquorice. Finish still intense malty, alcoholic, goes down burning. Too much for me!

Niall73 (2427) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown. Aroma is lovely - sweet with lots of dark fruit figgy rumminess and meaty soy sauce. Stunned I cant detect booze in the aroma. Full body, medium carbonation. A boozy delight. Theres some heat from the booze, but this is lovely - dark choc, bitter coffee, burnt treacle, rum, sticky dark fruit, ash, smoke, wood... The booze is so well integrated, it doesnt jar at all. Tasty.

SlackerMads (3161) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Black with a medium sized slowly diminishing light brown ok lacing head. Heavy bourbon notes of coconut, vanilla and licorice all sorts. Cocoa, chocolate, light grain, burnt malt, hefty alcohol warmth, white sugar. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, light bitterness. Tickling alcohol on the gums and a burn on the tongue. Ok, but too rough. Light dry and astringent finish.
