Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head - seems over carbonated - is it an infection? The aroma has notes of chocolate, malt, roasted malt, and citrus fruits - infection? The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, chocolate, and alcohol, leading to a dry roated and chocolate soy sauce finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of scrizz. Pours an opaque black with a thick, light brown head with excellent retention and some lacework. Sweet hard roasted malt in the nose with some vanilla. Medium body, sweet vanilla and licorice - lots of vanilla actually. A little hard roast malt in the finish. 091109

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2006
Pretty damn black. Smokey, tarry, nutty aroma. Smooth, thick, oily body. Rich and decadent sweet chocolate, with accents of smoke, roast and charred roast beef. Massive flavour. Late alcohol, roasty sting, fairly dry. The intensity is brisk, the balance a bit off. The overall package is not spectacular, but this has some things going for it...it has a certain appeal though I could see some folks not liking this much at all.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2008
Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
Pours pitch black with a wonderful, creamy brown head. Wonderful exotic aroma. Tobacco, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, sugar, port and roasted malts. Quite high carbonation, relatively lively. Slightly oily in feel. Flavour is to the sweet side, with a light fruitiness to the roasted malts. Lots of sweet coffee, dark, mild chocolate. Finish is relatively bitter with a great aftertaste of roasted chocolate.

bhensonb (10804) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a very dark brown/black with a 3-finger dark tan head that lasts. Aromas of dark fruits, dark chocolate and darkly toasted malt. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is unusual. Kind of like burnt toast covered with chocolate coated prunes or cherries. Getting some coffee, but that might be cause I just had Mokah. Seems a little oaky. It’s more complicated than I am. Finishes mouthwateringly dark fruity/chocolaty. This one is worth seeking out.
