Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mdagnew on 09-03-2011

This three way collaboration first made its appearance back in November 2010 and is back and better than ever. Sitting at a slightly lower ABV (15.2% compared to 16% originally) this beer is a combination of signature stouts; Nogne’s Dark Horizon, Mikkeller’s Black and our Tokyo*.

This is everything you would expect and then some from such a decadent stout collaboration. Thick, black and viscous, this is a beer which just keeps giving as it warms, with more layers of chocolate, coffee and deep roasted malts coming through in different waves of emphasis, it transforms in your glass and is best indulged in slow.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. No head. Stains the glass.

Smell - Dark chocolate, raisins, lots of coffee. Tons of black patent malt.

Taste - Dark chocolate turns to coffee which turns to acrid, bitter, black patent malt. Ashy and burnt. So much Mikkeller Black in this. Finishes very sweet and raisiny.

Mouthfeel - Heavy, low carbonation. Boozy and bitter.

Overall - Very tough to drink. If it weren't for the acrid flavors, it would be pretty impressive.
