Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt as well as notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and chocolate, leading to a dry and roasted finish, where the chocolate and cocoa notes lingers.

Very dark brown clear beer. A bit unfair tasting this after ’Legend of the Liquid Brain’. Toasty malt, no real chocolate. Dry palate. Original rating 2.7

At Papsoe’s pre CPH Beer Fest tasting, cheers Henrik! Opaque black beer, bubbly tan head. Soft bubbly palate. Rich malt, chocolatey malt with a subtle orange - grapefruit undertone.

Black color, medium head, beige colored. There is roasted malt aroma, ashes; luckily some alcohol too, that in this case fits well for the balance; light smoke and soy sauce, if possible. Medium strength and body, with a dryish chocolate flavor, burnt malts, light liquorice. The final is dominated by the chocolate, not bad but not exciting either.

Bottle at the hotel room in San Diego. Black beer with a small head. Roasted chocolate aroma, licorice, coffee, cocoa powder, caramel, earthy notes, some biscuits. Roasted chocolate flavor, tar, coffee, kinda bitter, hay notes, some tar. A bit too heavy on not so good coffee. Liked the aroma though.
