A massive Imperial Stout. The first IS brewed by Revelation Cat. Aged for nearly a year in steel tanks and fermented out to 14% Bottled in 2012 in limited quantity and released slowly throughout the following years. On the bottle: "Black Knight’s sure you’d love to know. But you’re just gonna have to find out ’Cause you’re not gonna get the recipe on the freakin’ bottle And beware of the 14% He’s gonna mess with you" "Keep it Cool and age this beer"

Ebony. Small brown head. Aroma of dark malt, oak and cigar box. Wonderful taste and aftertaste of liquorice, cough medicine and hot and bitter sauna wood.

Dec. ’16. A 0.5 l bottle at Brasserie 4:20, huge, enormous thanks to the Roman ratebeer crew (ippopotamo36 and Mortlach) for pulling it out! Bottle #444/1650, by their words, one of the few last conditioned bottles in existence! So, it poured a pitch black body with medium sized head. Beautiful, strong aroma of dried and cooked fruits, coffee, chocolate and licorice. And more. Flavor was lightly sweet, with notable roasty bitterness. Dried fruits dominated, like raisins, which even seemed a bit oxidated, but drown in chocolate, licorice, coffee and cooked plum perfection it wasn’t bothering. Secondary flavors pronounced plum jam and even added some cinnamon, pepper and some unidentified aromatic herbs to it as the finish was smoothly built up. I missed to write down a lot of things for sure. Full bodied, with warming alcohol all the way through, but extremely drinkable for 14%. Not the best I’ve had for sure, but an excellent imperial stout, very complex, well balanced and tasty. My kind of thing. Silo mi ka budali pleska.

Bottled. Old note. The aroma has strong chocolate, some fruit tones, dark roast, coffee. Black coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is moderate bitter with chocolate sweetness, coffee, hint of dried fruit, hint of ash. Full bodied, creamy, massive. Very nice Alex, and thanks for sending me this bottle years ago.

crim (424) - POLAND - OCT 5, 2016
W aromacie sos sojowy, słodka czekolada, kawa wanilia, troche wiśni W smaku pełne, słodkie, średnia gorycz posmak palony, słodki karmelowy, waniliowy i słodkiej czekolady Podsumowując piwo z 2011 roku, na duży minus sos sojowy, na plus traktują, dla mnie troche za słodkie ale warto spróbować

All you could want in an imperial stout. Taste is lightly roasty and bitter but mostly sweet and decadent, perfect for a dessert
