[ Courtesy of Urbain and Carlo ]. Clear dark black color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, chocolate, coffee, oak, cask wood, vanilla. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration. The alcohol is very well hidden. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft and very smooth. ;o)) Thanks again Urbain and Carlo, [20081025]

Draft. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of alcohol and chocolate combined with medium notes of roasted malt. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of roasted malt and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted and alcoholic finish. The body is oily thick.

BigMomma and I helped supervise Urbeer’s preparation of this one for the 2nd BBF at de Molen. To check his work, we had to taste it every few hours, as it plummeted to - 3 degrees, and then dove further into the icy depths. Final strength tested at 26.8%, and we schlepped it off to de Molen. At the festival, just to ensure that the integrity of the beer remained intact, we sampled it periodically over both days. This rating is from the version we had for breakfast on the festival’s second day. THEN, steptin generously shared his bottle of this nectar with us, with Matthias, and with the back seat of Matthias’ Mercedes. Black enough to suck some light from the room. Thick, creamy dark brown head that upholds small round metallic objects placed in the glass. Aroma is concentrated whiskey, bitter cocoa and burnt espresso. Taste is rich, thick, chewy, and causes tingling of the tongue and soul. Bitter finish that progresses to thoracic warming and gentle esophageal moaning. Miraculous stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2010 tap at de Molen ... blak ... big bubble tan head ... rich coffee toffee malt nose... silkly smooth ... big coffee ... light dry finish ... quite a lot of alcohol ... little oxidation ... full body ... soft chocolate ... real nice ... Tk2 De Molen ... deep black ... rich soft roast malt ... light coffee nose ... big coffee roast ... rich solid malts ... silky smooth .. very rich ... but what wins this is how drinkable it is... this is probably the most drinkable big beer ive had

Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Near black, no head. Syrupy alcoholaroma. Super-mega sweet with black hole style body. Compact with syrupy sugar, resin and burning saccharine compressed to a singularity. Inky and very aggressive. Yikes, this is certainly not for me.

24th September 2010. Borefts Beer Festival.
Opaque black beer. Surprisingly big brown head. Rich dark chocolate and minerally coffee. Dark malt - lots of other subtle things. But the most remarkable thing here is it’s drinkability. It looks and drinks like a beer and nothing like a spirit (a la Schorschbock, Bismarck etc). There is hardly any warmth from the alcohol which is astonishingly well hidden. An amazing piece of brewing craft!
