, just another rediculous world class beer on this RBSG tour. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head. A solar eclipse when held against the California sun warming behind us. Dense roasted malt and chocolate aroma, like a smooth piece of Belgian chocolate that you’ll enjoy in a second. Flavour is smooth, dense chocolate and roasted malt. Mild lingering alcohol into the finish. Smooth and extremely tasty - by far not as boozy as some of the first editions where.
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt combined with notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and alcohol, which leaves a burn in the mouth. The body is thick. joergen (28974) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2008

Pitch black colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, smoke, alcohol, salted licorice and a lot of caramel malts. Flavour is much the same, but will probably be better and more mellow if kept for some time. Will be interesting to see if this gets better than the first edition.
1 pint 0.9 fl oz bottle, laid down one year. Blackest of black with a large but rapidly disappearing dark maroon head. Aroma of alcohol, cocoa and turpentine. Taste begins with milk chocolate, progresses through raisins to tannin, then finishes with a tingly roasted cafe au lait. Worth the wait. cgarvieuk (25728) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2008

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Bottled at Europen Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Very black, no head. Tarry nose with wet asphalt and wood. Sweet and thick with compact mouthfeel and massive body. A tar explosion sends cascades of licorice, salmiak and grain vodka all over the place. When things finally settles it ends up tasting like Finnish Salmiakki-booze. madmitch76 (25344) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012

Opaque black beer, thin chocolate coloured head. Dark malt nose with ’green’ coffee. Surprisingly light palate, a little soft. Spirity dark malt and coffee. A coffee liquer without the sweetness. A trace of unsweet dark chocolate. Whisper of cherry before an effervescent dark malt with minerals. Less sweet than the 1st Edition but lighter and with some fruit.
