Appearance: Pours an onyx black body with a frothy, dark tan head.
Smell: Rich, inviting aroma of sweetish dark malts, licorice, and unsweetened chocolate with hints of roast and smoke.
Taste: Dark maltiness fulled by a knee-buckling punch of roasted, freshly ground coffee and dark chocolate. Medium sweetness. Faint dark fruitiness. Earthy, roasty bitterness. Hint of smoke and licorice candy. Some squares of caramel floating in there, too. Roasty, sweet, warming finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s fabulous in oh-so many ways.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Thanks to BrianK for sharing this roasty treat. Pours a black body with a mild tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate malt coffee and bozzy. Flavor is a dry roasty chocolate with a moderate etoh warming in the finish. Probably the best stout i’ve had to date from denmark and subsequentally im probably overrating this.

Opened for my 25th birthday. Huge roasty character which absolutely predominates. Pretty intense if you ask me. This beer really wasn’t for me but was not a bad beer by any means.

Thick black pour with a creamy light tan head. Smell is some grain alcohol and malt but almost a tart malt (not a chocolatey malt). Flavor is ashy and a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is interesting. Medium body. Drinkable, glad I got to try this. Thanks Mike!
