Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - NOV 11, 2012
0,25l bottle as gift from Denmark. Opaque, black color with medium, creamy, dark brown head, which disappears quickly. Sweet, alcoholly odor followed by roasty, smoked malt flavours. The aroma is incredibly smoky and roasty. At the beginning its sweet and caramelly, but after the firs impressions its dry and tastes like a roast pork. Its definitelly made with a lot of smoked malt, which causes this meet flavour. It must had a lot of chocolate malt too which makes the color so black, but it doesnt make the beer sour and bitter. Alcohol and honey flavours also appears. Dry, intensive and complex taste, nothing can dominate, but all the three basic flavours (sweet, sour, bitter) appears. Full bodied with oily texture and light carbonation. Roast pork finish. Its an interesting beer. Surprisingly complex, incredibly oily and full bodied. This beer is dominated by the malty flavours, and from this view its the opposite of the Mikkeller Black Hole, which is a "hoppy imperial stout". Its a concentrated beer, 25cl is totally enough. The alcohol content isnt too high, and it cant be felt as dominant in the aroma. The texture, the body, and the malty flavours make this beer this rich and concentrated.

olsvammel (6791) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget... I think. Dark malty smell with coffee, also a bit boozy. Similar taste, very roasted. A bit rough mouthfeel and flavour profile. Raw.

Bottle. Pitch black color with beige head that lasts for long, pours like petrol.Aromas of roast, dark chocolate and coffee.Sweet and heavy taste, some alcohol notes but not the whole abv is visible for sure. Dark chocolate all the way, with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Very complex and highly enjoyable indeed.

On tap at Mikkeller San Fransisco. So damn tasty, lots of coffee and dark chocolate going on, super smooth, dangerously drinkable for 12%.

Winter has finally arrived, so I decided to crack open this bottle! Thanks to Holmen1 for the gift! Pours like engine oil, really thick and viscous. Very dark and virtually no carbonation. Taste is rich and gloriously complex. Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, spices. leather and dried vine fruits are all in the mix. Great flavours. This is a really wonderful winter beer. The high alcohol content is well concealed by an appealing sweetness and excellent balance. A really good ale which is very easy to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2016 Black with a dark brown head. Aroma of dark fruits and sweet. Taste is bittersweet dark fruits and slight chocolate. More of a Russian imperial with the flavors.
