4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2010 (Bottle) Pours black with a dark brown head. Very hoppy aroma with tones of citrus, mostly grapefruit, and some resin. The roasted malt brings coffee first and then maybe some smaller notes of chocolate. Liquorice and tar also present. Good, extreme flavour that is struggling between the hops and the roasted/burned malt. Coffee, tar, citrus, grapefruit, some asphalt and cocoa up front. Full, thick, roasted oily and aggressive mouthfeel with a medium to full bitterness. Full body. Fantastic. 8/4/10/5/17 Rerate: (Bottle) Pours super black with small, but creamy, brown head. The aroma is super roasted - asphalt, tar, coffee, buurned rubber, cocoa and liquorice Clear, aggressive tones of resinous, light peachy and grapefruity hops. Maybe a light yeasty touch, otherwise the nose is very simple and strait forward. Hints of soy, rasinis, figs, vanilla, earth, plack pepper and rye bread. Clean, but nothing more than the malt and hop notes. The flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Light acidic and medium to heavily bitter finish. Citrus, coffee, cocoa, asphalt and liquorice, Slight touch of blackberries. The mouthfeel is fat and round, jet clean with near medium carbonation. Lingering bitter roastiness and resinous hops. Near full-bodied.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Batch 05, bottle number 101/400. My stouty number 200. Pours a totally pitch black colour with a big firm creamy long lasting light brown head that leaves a great thick sticky lacing. Aroma of chocolate indeed, prunes and raisins, roasted malt and alcohol. Thick sticky well filling mouthfeel. The flavour .... yummyyyy.... smooth and creamy with lots of dark bitter chocolate, roasted malt, liquorice, alcohol, dark fruits and bitter coffee. Dry bitter roasty long lasting alco finish. Good that I have had the pleasure of tasting a whole 1/2 L. bottle and not just a sample. One of the best Imp. Stout I have had.

Wonderful pitch black beer with a, no doubt, 5/5 look of dark cafe au lait head. Heavy roasty aroma with strong notes of coffechocs and watery teeths. Creamy mouthfeel of similar notes ending up in a weelbalanced finish of alcohol, also flowers. A very challenging beer, "who" can lasts for a long eve.

Draught at Ølbaren. Very black colour and very small head. The first thing I notice about the flavour is a biting hoppiness. Other than that there is a good roast malt bitterness and some coffee. Very nice.

Black colour with a small dense light brown head. Roasted malty aroma with coffee bitter and chocolate sweet notes and vague hints of fruit. Roasted, coffee bitter flavor with some cocoa sweetness and a light alcohol sweet finish. Great beer from this new danish brewery.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. High creamy brown and long lasting head. Getting exited now. Body: Absolutely no light through this pitch black body. Even more exited. Powerful coffee cocoa liqorice aroma. Pretty bitter coffee hops flavor with a nice strong bitterness that lasts for a while. Alcohol well hidden by the powerful coffee hops bitterness. On top of it this beer has an unexpected freshness. I don’t know why but I definately like it.

Courtesy of Papsoe. Thank you, Henrik. The aroma is literally so thick and concentrated with cocoa, chocolate, fudge, esspresso and dark fruits that I wonder how it climbed out of the glass under it’s sheer weight. The body is deep black with a beautiful, craggy, creme brulee looking mocha head that is quite lasting. The fore is quality esspressow ith a healthy dose of cream. Dark chocolate, burnt fudge, black cherry, roasted/burnt malts, plum, prune and lots of hop bitterness make up the middle to the finish. Hints of licorice and vanilla appear here and there through all flavor ranges.
