3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. All black body, big brown head. Looking excellent! Aroma of dark malts, coffee, licorice, vanilla. Taste of chocolate cake and cappuchino, pretty sweet stuff, still has a sharp bitterness at the end together with a rather strong alcohol note. Good stuff, but a bit anonymous amongst other 8%IS’s.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Svart med ett tätt och riktigt brunt skum. Doft: Kakao, alkohol, rostat, kola, kanderat socker, övermogen honungsmelon. Smak: Bränt trä, bränt socker, kakao, citrus skal, kaffe, alkohol. Lite för mycket bränt trä och beska för min smak.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a thick black with a big, khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has milk chocolate, cacao powder, and a bit of licorice and leather. The taste is milk chocolate sweetness, with some mild bitterness similar to licorice. Earthy as well. Thicker mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Really tasty stuff.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Black with rich beige head. Rich aroma of licorice, blackberries and salmiak. Mid sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Tobacco, leather, salmiak and dark chocolate pave the way to a severely inky bitter finish. Enjoyable until the inky finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coffee in the aroma is heavy. Heavy coffee flavor that makes up most of the flavor. Maybe with small hints of licorice. Bitterness in the aftertaste infernal heavy and really knocks out all my taste buds in the mouth forever. Far too bitter for my taste and the heavy flavor. Do you have a lot of flavor and bitterness, this is the beer you drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark tar-like liquid. Brown head. Smoky smell. The flavor is full of dark bitter chocolate and black coffee. Hops are apparent but not overwhelming. Good! Not a refreshing beer for a hot summers day, but excellent when coming back inside after some hours outdoors a snowy winters day. Can I say it’s "foody"?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky deep brown body with a small brown head. This doesn’t look that good, but I guess it’s my own fault: the sample I’m rating is the leftovers from a lukewarm bottle with lots of yeasty sediments. The aroma is strong with roasted notes of coffee, hops and yeast. The taste is moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Strong flavour of coffee and citrus, a good malt/hop balance. Also too much dirty yeast, but again, that’s my fault. Oily texture, full body, very soft carbonation and a yeasty dry finish (the latter I assume is... wait for it... my fault). This is probably a very good beer, and I’m hereby ashamed of myself for rating this based on a small, warm, yeasty sample.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
There’s something about the Danish water that makes me constantly have problems with their dark beers. Sour, stone heavy and slightly gooey mess that is only lifted by a slightly salty licorice flavor.
