This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Pours a deep, dark brown--practically black. The best thing here is the frothy, billowy head, which is medium brown in color. Head lasts quite a while, to be replaced by some nice, heavy lacing. The aroma is a bit too restrained for a stout, but there are chocolate malts and more than a hint of licorice. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, almost watery, but it does not detract from the overall experience. Moderate carbonation. Taste is complex--licorice predominates, with chocolate malts following, and only a hint of alcohol. Roasted, but not burnt--unmistakably a stout, but much in common with a fine porter. In all, an exemplary stout.

Nice dark color with foam hat cappuccino color, persistent and compact. The taste is clean, with an important body, creamy, sweetened by a light molasses that is well balanced with the toasted malts and the chocolate. Great beer.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Magic Duels. Perfectly balanced in all aspects. Tasty and not overwhelming roastyness. Well placed noble hops. No trace of alcohol nor of the licorice announced in the label.

Vestergaard (1761) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2016
From bottle. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma has roasted and caramel malts, light licorice maybe, chocolate, toasted malts, hints of spice like clove and cinnamon. Taste is super smooth, sweetish, light bitterness in the after taste. Super Nice creamy body and a light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep black with a two finger dark brown head. One of the most flavorful beers Iíve ever had, but without too much alcohol or too thick a body. Delightfully quaffable

tricksta_p (3617) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, liquorice, bit burnt, dark chocolate, espresso, touch of vanilla. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and bitter. Body is medium. Iím not the worlds biggest fan of beers that are heavy on liquorice, but this has plenty of other flavours to enjoy such as dark chocolate and coffee.

Black, thick beige head. Aroma has licorice, roasted malt and coffee. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Raw licorice flavour, roasted malt and notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Slightly sticky with well balanced bitterness. Very good considering the moderate ABV.
