my only complaint here is that my glass wasnt bigger! it was a 2012 edition on tap at the tap and handle in fort collins, very cool and rare treat here. its gorgeous in the glass, no shine at all, understated dark coffee colored brew, plenty of head on it, and looking awesome in my 8 oz. wine glass. a nose of the deepest, driest roast, barley bitter at all, and with some raisin and tobacco notes to it as well, maybe unsweetened chocolate too. the flavor is awesome too, i swear there is some wheat malt in here of one persuasion or another, and the raisin thing really develops later on. the booze is majorly well hidden, and it drinks lavishly, luxuriously, and decadently, but it also drinks kind of quick, being so delicious and interesting. i always find myself drinking and seeking barrel aged stouts, but if ever there was a stout to prove that a barrel is sometimes not necessary or even desirable, its this one. i have not had other beers from these guys, but not think i have to. this is lights out. i wonder how much age has improved it, or if it was this good from the get go. i suspect the latter honestly...

500 ml bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger mocha head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Mocha lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Burnt molasses, smoke, caramel, toffee, chocolate, roasted coffee, earthy, and some nice warming booze.

Taste: Definitely char forward like the bottle says. The level of char goes well with the other qualities one looks for in a RIS.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and nice warming alcohol.

Overall: Had thus at the EBF and loved it. Now wish I had more bottles to age.

A-Sample from EBF. Pours very dark.

S-I found it to be very peaty in the nose. Some char and ash. Burnt coffee and bitter dark chocolate.

T-More peat. A little bit of leather. Pretty bitter. Dark chocolate and burnt coffee. A strange yeasty flavor. Anise.

M-I didn't even think this was a Stout. It was thin for a beer of this magnitude. I didn't find it to be very boozy either. It needs more body.

O/D-I wasn't a huge fan of this one. The flavors didn't match up well. Oh well it was just a sample.

Black Force One is indeed a force of blackness - not even NASA's telescopes are strong enough to see through this utter darkness! Carbonation didn't appear instantly; it took at least a dozen seconds after the pour before a bubbly brown foam materialized from seemingly nothing. Then it all but dissipated in about the same span of time.

I was very excited about the use of peat smoked malt - as an avid Islay drinker it's a favourite of mine - but what initially gets my attention is not the malt, but rather the hops; the beer smells like a coniferous forest in spring bloom (and/or after a brush fire). The aroma has loads of pine and spruce tips as well as underlying mushroom-like qualities and, naturally, a strong smokiness.

The taste does not disappoint, combining all the earthy 'forest-floor' and charred tree bark notes with bittersweet flavours of espresso and pure cocoa. (While these notes lack the richness of a chocolate dessert, they also contain hardly a trace of the burnt, astringent qualities of black coffee.) Its bitterness is like that of a strongly-steeped peppermint tea.

Officially listed as 10.4%, the labs in these parts deemed it 8.4% (relatively mild for a beer labeled an "extra strong stout"). The mouthfeel certainly aligns with the latter, lacking in richness and depth of flavour. Still, the use of smoked peat malt provides all the dimension necessary to keep one entertained, plus a little shot of vanilla makes it that much more pleasant.

Given its price tag you'd think Black Force One was flown from its native Denmark on the presidential jet. But to say it's worth the money is not a hard case to make (especially if you have the disposable income). To be sure, there are equal domestic offerings at much better value, but if you're in the mood to Xbeeriment (see what I did there?!) this is a very safe bet.

500ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $7

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a large size frothy light brown head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and vanilla. There is also a bit of a roasted peanut flavour, some dark fruits, coffee, and some smokey notes.

Overall - A nice blend of a variety of flavours. It's a very satisfying and it goes down fast, considering the ABV. Although the lcbo tag on the bottle lists it at about 8%. A little pricey, but worth picking up a bottle to try. I'll get a few more bottles.

Its big black body is topped with an inch of wispy tan head. Alcohol film along with plenty of dots of lace stick to the glass after a few swirls.

Heaps of sweet dark chocolate, fudge, and cake icing define the nose. This makes me think of Southern Tier's Choklat. A faint cloud of smoke lies on the outskirts of this dessert-like stout. Its overall impression is rich and sweet, without a sign of booze.

Its chocolate character is more rough around the edges. Dark chocolate, cocoa, and chocolate cake are more fitting descriptors. There's a roasty coffee undertone that meshes with its sweet chocolate qualities, disjointing them as it asserts itself. A peaty smokiness is detectable but faint; pinching the back of the palate. The sweet chocolaty essence drowns out its influence.

After my first sip I thought there's no way this clocks in at 10.4%. And even after reading it's actual ABV of 8.4% (thanks to the LCBO) I still find it hard to believe its strength. It has plenty of flavour but it lacks the fullness of an Imperial Stout for me, seeming a bit watery at times. On the positive side of things, this is quite drinkable.

Through and through this is a good stout. For a "smoked" imperial stout, I'd like more of the smoked malt influence in there. It does, however, have plenty of sweet chocolaty goodness which I enjoyed. Worth a try but there are plenty of better ones out there.

From a 500 ml bottle to a snifter.

A - Pours a deep molasses brown/black with a thin one finger head that breaks quickly leaving a little lacing and a small foamy island.

S - Coffee, chocolate, leather, anise/licorice, and smoke.

T - coffee, malts, molasses and smoke. The flavors really bloomed upon warming to room temperature.

M - medium carbonation, decent mouth feel. Smooth and creamy. Really improved as the beer warmed.

O - A nice beer which became much better as it moved closer to room temperature. I found as it warmed the flavors really came out, and it found its feet. There is a smokiness there that is nice on a winter night, and it seems appropriate to have by the fire. I would have this beer again, if I could find it.

Review from notes from a month ago.

Opaque black with a dense espresso colored head. Trails and chunks of lace coat the glass on the way down. Plum, raisin, roasted malts in the aroma. Sweet christmas pudding with rum mixes with a dry roastyness and a very light hop profile. The 10+ abv is definitely noticeable, but never a distraction. The mouthfeel is full bodied with a medium carbonation level – very creamy and smooth. Light hops and a vinous maltiness linger for a long time in the finish.

This is a good RIS. Very malty with restrained black malt bitterness and hop aroma. Worth a try for sure, a great winter brew. Dangerous!

Picked up a bottle from the LCBO for just under $6 CDN. Served fairly cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Jet black beer poured eradicates all light as you try to look through the glass. 1.5 fingers of dark tan head lingers for a while and the head is creamy and voluminous, leaving nice lacing on the side of the glass. Good looking beer.

Smell - Coffee, espresso, anise, licorice and floral undertones as well as a vibrant bitter / sour smell from the hops. Really pleasant.

Taste - Coffee with a faint caramel sweetness, and hoppy bite on the back end and in the aftertaste. Underlying smoke and ash flavors too, but these are mild. Booze is pretty imperceptible. Flavors are big and robust overall.

Mouthfeel - Creamy, smooth, full-bodied. Carbonation is medium -low and the only indication of booze is the warmth in the back of the throat after a few gulps.

Overall - A very fine brew, love the hops mixed in with all the stout flavors in my first foray into this style, but look forward to many more. Definitely would recommend.

(4.25) A: Near pitch black with a milky and bubbly mocha coloured head. Long lasting retention and spotty lacing.

(4.25) S: Dark fruits (plums, raisins, dates), rich caramel, dark chocolate and roasted coffee bean, molasses, and a touch of woody smoke. Vibrant and diverse aroma. There’s a slight sour tinge on the back end as well.

(4.25) T: Espresso bean, dark chocolate, dark fruits (plums & dates), woody smoke, leather, and caramel. A slight oaky booziness but kept in check well considering the ABV (in fact wouldn’t mind a bit more). Delicious.

(4.0) M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Creamy, silky, and semi-sticky.

(4.25) D: The diverse mix of flavours may be more standard for the style but it's done quite well here resulting in a very drinkable imperial stout. Standout quality is the oaky smoke flavour that lingers on the backend. Very nice.

Beer is black with a moderately-sized tan head,

Nose contains anise, mild peat, roasted malt and chocolate.

The peat is stronger in the taste, but still not overly strong. Peat, a bit of smoke, roasted malt, chocolate, anise and some vanilla. Nice flavour, and the peat is a nice addition, but not anything remarkable.

Full bodied, moderate carbonation, fairly slick.

Overall, a good and slightly unusual beer, but nothing that one would need to seek out.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt with some notes of dry coffee with light tobacco notes. Taste is also dominated by dry coffee notes with lightly bitter roasted malt with some black chocolate. Body is pretty full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed overall but lacking a little bit of character to stand out from the mass of imperials stout out there.

I'm not normally a huge fan of smoke beer as generally it's so heavy handed with the smoke. I'm not also a big fan of dark beers with heavy molasses or dark ripe fruit flavors as I find the characteristics to clash. I poured this a bit cold with a small to medium size, tan, foamy head that soon settled to a thin filmy cover with some sudsy islands and good lacing. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is old leather, roast malt, molasses, dark ripe fruit, and just a little smoke. Flavor and body is where this beer really stands out and compliment one another. Flavor's a little like nose, but the qualities that I don't like are well muted and behind the roast malt, the perfect amount of smoke, slight malt sweet, the bitter and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are untoppable. Finish is like flavor, very drinkable, of average length for this style, and almost no indication of alcohol power. Superior beer!

Pours a very, very dark brown colour, just glimpses of colour up to the light. Head is a gorgeous hue, ochre, with nice density, settles out to a thinnish film. But some lovely clingy lacing left behind. It's a cracker.

Smell is toasty and pleasant. Not too heavy, but a bold, strong roast to it giving charred wood, espresso and some black pepper. Notes of honey-glazed meat and some walnut characters as well. Also a slight hoppy note on there lifts it. Really quite good, but maybe a little too savoury; has a slight staleness to it after a while.

Taste is quite nutty and malty as well. Really rather sweet, with a touch of molasses, vegemite and some prunes, sticky date and caramel as well. Midway the roast hits, adding another dimension but not quite quashing the sweetness, just guides it gently with a final dark bitterness. OVerall, doesn't quite plumb the depths of flavours it introduces - the sweetness floats and dominates through it all, and the roastiness could have saved the day if it were a bigger complement.

Full, nice boozey texture, but manifested as dryness on the back without a lot of heat. Not bad at all.

Yeah, not as great as it could have been. Nice big characters, but there's a lot of homebrewers who could throw together these characters on a small scale and produce a similar beer. Not quite enough wow factor for me.

A - Pours a very dark black color with a finger of frothy chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of chocolate malts, smoke, coffee, molasses, black licorice, and vanilla with a touch of dark fruit and booze.

T - Starts off with some chocolate malts with some molasses, dark fruit, vanilla, and black licorice. Through the middle, some coffee comes through with some good smoke flavor. The finish is a mix of chocolate malts, with smoke, dark fruit, molasses, black licorice, and a bit of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a smokey, sweet, and warming finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice big smoked stout. Good balance of flavors with some nice smoke character.

On tap, poured into a 12 oz brandy style snifter

Pours a light, creamy ¼” thick, tan colored head, which has very brief longevity, and some lace which sticks to the side of the glass with each drink, but then vanishes. Easily revived with a swirl of the glass. The lace was much improved on the second and third glass (first glass not clean enough?)
Opaque color, black.

The aroma begins with some light to medium hops followed by distinct, deep rich malt with a roasted espresso character, quite vinous with black bread and yeast notes. Totally different yeast in nose, very enjoyable and complex.

Crisp, rich, bitter entry on the palate of very light hops, followed by very distinctive, rich malt. The malt has a very refined, yeasty, roasted character with flavors of dark unsweetened chocolate and bitter espresso. The body is full, with a fine balanced carbonation and an off dry sweetness.
Delicious! Wow!

Very long finish of faint hops and bitter malt. The malt dominates with espresso bitterness and lingering richness, tinged with yeast.

This is an exceptionally enjoyable stout, with very different, and indescribable smells and flavors.
My guess would be the different yeasts and malts used. Very unique, delicious and rich!
You want another and another until you are finished off.
Highly recommended!

1 pint .9 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into an EKU 28 snifter in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. I've never had an xbeeriment beer, but my expectations are high.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger head of slight tan colour, nice cream and thickness, and impressive retention for the high ABV. Colour is a predictable solid nontransparent opaque black. No yeast particles are visible - probably due to the nontransparency.

Sm: Exquisite roast, smoke, and chocolate, and caramel. A bit simple but very pleasant and inviting. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Pleasant smoke is present throughout without being overbearing. Nice chocolate. The roast is extremely problematic. Alcohol comes through. Simple for an experimental beer. Not at all subtle; the few present flavours beat you over the head. No real layering. No yeast comes through. Badly balanced but built decently.

Mf: Astringent - a huge problem. Smooth, wet, and thick. Poorly executed for the style; it should be coarse and dry (and not at all astringent). Methinks there was an error on the brewer's part; maybe they boiled the mash by accident.

Dr: Drinkable for the high ABV but boring and bland. Overpriced. I certainly wouldn't get this again. I'll give the brewery a few more stabs, but this doesn't bode well.

Pours jet black, with some dark head. Above average mouthfeel, slick oily. Decent, but a tad of the off mouldy taste I have had from other xbeeriment beers was in there. A fresh bottle. Decent drinkability.I liked it, my mate didn't want more than a sip.Smoke in aroma, and not overwhelming.

500 ml bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours almost pitch black color with a very nice 1 finger dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, roasted coffee, charcoal, caramel, dark malts, tobacco, citrus, herbal hops, biscuit, and a touch of alcohol. Nice and well balanced aromas. Taste of big dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, charcoal, black malt, biscuit, caramel, toffee, pine, herbal hops, and a bit of dark fruits. Fairly intense pine and citrus bitterness on the first sip that mellows out as you drink to reveal the malt backbone. Lingering notes of dark coffee, chocolate, pine, herbal, and biscuit on the finish for a while. Despite the big hoppiness; there is a nice malt flavor balance in this beer. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and enjoyable Imperial stout. Quite an intense experience with the hoppiness, but is a nice sipper.

Bottle shared by Jason, 500ml into a tulip.

Black body with a light brown head. Fantastic retention and good lacing. Nose is big and hoppy, almost akin to an imperial black ale. Chocolate, brown sugar and a hint of smoke as well. Taste has bitter dark chocolate, with some balancing malt sweetness. Very nice hop notes again, brown sugar and some toasrty/lightly burnt/smoky malt notes as well. Thick and imposing body, a huge body. Some alcohol as well. An interesting beer surely, a big hoppy imperial stout, but straddles the line between an imperial stout and imperial black ale I thought.

Served on tap at Mugs Alehouse in Brooklyn, NY

A: Pours a very dark black in color with some subtle brown hints when held up to the light. The beer has a very thin tan head that reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Lots of dark roasted and slightly charred malts along with light hints of chocolate.

T: Lots of dark roasted malts with some subtle hints of bittersweet chocolate. Very smooth and very complex. Some bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Really enjoyable and definitely one to pick up again - I guess I'm lucky that my local bottle shop carries this one. I really liked the complexity of the flavor and the smell.

Purchased from Healthy Spirits in San Francisco, where Dave warned me it was a particularly smoky stout. That sounded more like an endorsement than a warning to me, so I picked it up with relish.

The pour is excellent, and in fact the head forms in such a blissful layering of melted icecream-like creaminess, leaving a tense and rigid, but still frothy head of mild chocolate brown. Lacing is excellent. The body is a deep brown-black, but it just hints at a translucent thinness at the edges that I feel really should not be there. Otherwise, a truly excellent looking brew. The head in particularly just makes me fall in love.

Nose is wonderfully deep and smooth, with mocha coffee coming through really pleasantly above a deeper darker base. The smokiness is actually rather refined and subdued, forming more as a part of the dark roasted grain rather than a character in and of itself. It integrates it better, but makes it less obvious as a result. Overall, it's a really pleasant nose. More towards the "normal" Imperial Stout realm than I expected, but good even for that.

Taste is smooth and full, with the body to support everything else put on top of it. Yes, there is more smokiness touching the palate, but again it lingers as an afterthought to the charred grain, forming more of an integral part of the beer than I expected—rather than the oddly skewing character I thought it might be. The sweetness is just enough to gentle caress and bathe the palate as a whole, making it supple and pleasant. Feel is smooth, but a little light. Really, once you're at post 10% ABV, you can afford to have a biog, meaty, chewy, chunky and otherwise obesely thick palate.

Overall, I enjoyed this a very great deal. While the smoke does provide an interesting side-note, the most impressive part of the beer is how well everything is integrated. It's complex but coherent. A great start in my book from another interesting Danish brewery.

Had on-tap at Pangaea's in Sacramento.

Very dark, nearly opaque. Not much head, but adequately carbonated.

Hops and chocolate aroma, light smoke.

Dry and fairly un-complex for an imperial stout, but what it does it does well. Chocolate-covered hops. The peat-smoked malt is subtle-- a nice touch without being overbearing.

Great, long-lasting aftertaste.

500 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours very dark brown/black with about an inch frothy tan head. The head sticks around a long time, and there's also a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted and smoked malt, chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like roasted and smoked malt, coffee, bittersweet and milk chocolate, piney hops, dark fruit and a bit of licorice. Nice balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. I don't think the smoke is strong in either the aroma or flavor. It is noticeable, but it's closer to being subtle than it is strong (which is a disappointment since this is labeled as being a smoked imperial stout). Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and has moderate carbonation. Even though this beer wasn't as smoky as I was expecting it to be, it's still a good overall brew and I liked it.

16.9 ounce bottle

Pretty darn close to jet black. Appropriate amount of head which is dirty-white in color. Strong lacing (not quite Duvel-strong but good).

I'd like to think I smell chocolate and roasted stuff. A good smell but not mind-blowing. As it warms up I like the smell of it less.

Chocolate, hops and roasted stuff. Tasty. There is some sweetness that makes me think of a milk-stout. The hop bitterness throw me off a little bit. This reminds me of something like Southern Tier Mokah but isn't quite as chocolaty as that beer. After taking a break for a minute or two, I'm amazing how dryed out my mouth is from the hops. I wonder what aspect the peak-smoked malt plays on the taste. I don't feel like I taste much smoke.

Good body to the beer.

Overall, a good beer. Reading the label and seeing what was involved in the beer helps the rating. Peat-smoked malt is cool idea.
