The dirtiest form of heroin. It is black and usually contains glass and other unwanted substances. It is extremely hazardous to your health and probably contains some form of brain damaging substance. It is much more harmful than regular heroin.

I am much more partial to the Black Tar Heroin rather than the powder form because the high is more intense and I can do less of it!
