UPDATED: APR 22, 2017 Z kranu w browarze (16/04/2016). Czarne z delikatna pianka. Wyraziste ciemne slody w aromacie, palony karmel, czekolada, trufle, praliny, wanilia. Analogicznie tylko jeszcze bardziej intensywnie w smaku, do tego lekka lukrecja, sos sojowy. Niska do sredniej goryczka. Pieknie ukryty alkohol (zadziwiajace przy tym ABV). Niskie wysycenie, likierowe, geste, oleiste i lepkie w odbiorze. Cudowny trunek!

Rask0lnikov (1075) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2016
On tap at the brewery Oostvleteren. Dark brown, almost black colour. No head. Aroma of toffee, bourbon, dark fruits, vanilla and raisins. Hints of wood. Toffee and caramel at first. Raisins and vanilla in the middle. Hints of oakiness, bit of smoke and bourbon. So creamy and tender. Reminds barley wine. Would not belive the abv. However, still heavy bodied, extremely low carbonated, really well balanced. Beer for very special moments with very special people.

daje (4245) - NORWAY - FEB 16, 2016
4cl glass at Grnerlkka Brygghus, july 28th 2015. Black and thick body with no head. Aroma is strong roasty with licorice, coffee, tar and alcohol. Taste of strong chocolate and vanilla, of course with a notable alcohol presence. Though to be at this strength I think the alcohol is hidden pretty well. Heavy malt and choco finish with a delicios bitterness. An impressive piece of madness.

750ml painted label. Aroma is very roasty. Obviously European imperial stout. Taste is Super dark malt. Lots of char. Dark fruit. Fig and raisin. Doesnt smell or taste anywhere near 26%, but you can feel the heat afterward. Body is super thick and oily.

750ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Pitch black color with no head. Malty aroma, dark dried fruits, light chocolate, cocoa, caramel, alcohol, wood. Sweet and heavy bitter, alcoholic taste like aroma with more chocolate and some coffee notes. Full silky sticky thick body with flat carbonation.

Dfonorow (2212) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Pour is pitch black with no head at all. Aroma and flavor of bourbon, coffee grounds, charcoal, and oak chips. Finish is boozy dark chocolate. Good, but hard to drink more than a few oz of it.

Draft at Monks Cafe in Philadelphia, PA. Pitch black and opaque with a half finger mocha head that quickly settles into thin, lasting ring. Spotty lace left behind. Smells like a boozy artisan chocolate bar. Strong ethanol with chocolate malt, subtle roasted coffee and oatmeal. Alcohol overpowers everything until it warms up considerably. Viscous medium body with a blast of intense spicy bourbon heat. Huge alcohol presence although there is a decent barrel character. Dry oak, vanilla and tons of bourbon. Its just insanely hot and rough to drink. 5oz is almost too much. As it warms, the malt character starts to show with a nice balance of sweetness and roast. Sweet vinous fruit, burnt coffee, ash, charcoal, dark chocolate and toffee but the bourbon and booze are really intense. Lots of heat and warmth in the chest.

750 ml. bottle. Pours black with a very small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, wood, and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, barrel, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, and a bit of coffee. WOW! Packs a punch.

From a big bottle at Grnerlkka brygghus, Oslo. Wow, that dark and oily. Really the used motor oil look without any traces of head. Intense roasty aroma dominated by dark chocolate, notes of coffee, cocoa, caramel and some wood and alcohol. Sweet, but surprisingly balanced and just delicious liquid dessert. Certainly a beer to enjoy in moderation, alcohol content is more in the liqueur range, and it does remind me a bit of a good one. Full body, warming alcohol and no traces of carbonation. Just delicious!
