COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No freeze distilling needed. This beer has been barrelaged 10 times on different bourbon barrels. It took us two years to bring the imperial stout Black up from the original 18% ABV to the amazing 26,1%.How about the taste? There is a reason it is called the “Black Fist”. Decant it as we suggest in the serving tips, and you will have a mindblowing experience. This beer is complex.

Shared bottle. Black, obviously, body with a small tan head. Aroma is extremely boozy, roasty with paint thinner. Taste is boozy, roasty and sweet. Bitter coffee and medicinal hoppyness. Quite an effort to actually drink this. It’s not like you’re looking forward to the next sip. Give it 10 more years in the bottle maybe..

14.07.2017, 0,375l bottle shared @ local tasting:
Nice light brown bubbly-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is dry sour-ish mineraly, dark malts, booze, minerals, toast, bark, bourbon, weeds, dark sugar, vanilla. Taste is sweet boozy, dark sugar, booze, minerals, oak, bourbon, dark malts, burnt toast, chocolate, caramel, grass, weeds. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry boozy mouthfeel. Fair enough. At least it’s way better than Black...

From the 375 ml bottle. Slick oil and booze in nose with some chocolate and a lot of booze. Good in small sips.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Potężne, bardzo bogate piwo o likierowej wręcz gęstości. Paloność, kawa, likier kakaowy, lukrecja, ciemne owoce. Wyraźny alkohol, ale nie aż tak jak w Black Damnation: Double Black. Piwo-wyzwanie :)

Dark translucent brown. Nose is very hot boozy fumes with some dark roast malts. Taste is hot and sweet with flavors of charge and barrel and hot booze. Slightly burn going down.

Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle: Served in a taster: Small creamy beige light brown head/lacing on top of a dark brown beer with a ruby shine coming through. Aroma us awesome! A great marriage between bourbon, wood/oak, vanilla, caramel, roast, fudgy, some marzipan and chocolate/soy tints with an earthy sprinkle. Flavour is unbalanced and of course alcohol burning... Liquorice, chocolate, cough syrup, whiskey tints, bitter warm crazyness, lots of strange herbal tints... Messy... Aftertaste is herbal, spice/alcohol burn edgy, malts, light dry, not to good bitter... Overall very meh... Low carbo, creamy oily and spicy/alcohol burn mouthfeel which dries up at the end, between medium and fuller bodied. Aroma is sublime and the only good thing about this beer! The rest is meh at best!

jbeatty (1248) - New York, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle, 12/27/2015. Pours black, minimal carbonation apparent. Aroma is sweet dark fruit, raspberry syrup, cocoa dust and brownie batter, very mild roast but rich vanilla and bourbon, booze not too apparent at all in the nose. Taste is sweet chocolate, some soy, intense roast and bitterness melding with boozy bourbon, lingering booze a bit much. Medium, viscous body. Smells wonderful but taste a bit too aggressive.
