brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pours black in color with no carbonation as far as I can tell. Oxidation, soy sauce, roasted malt, chocolate, and booze on the nose. Some mild fruit notes and maybe a bit of fish food. The flavor is significantly better than the nose. Quite boozy but good chocolate, roasted malt, and sugar flavors. Still has some soy sauce and oxidation, though.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Thanks riversideAK! Chewy coffee mocha, dark chocolate mocha. Rich dark brown body, deep body. Smoky chipotle nose. Very heavy woodsy body, super deep caramel, perfectly concentrated and heavy. Very chewy. Up my alley. Molasses sweetness, sticky lips.

Dark fruit soy roast alcohol nose. Pours black no head or lace. Sweet chocolate soy roast sugar alcohol. Almost still strong hot. Not bad.

alexsdad06 (5410) - Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Sampled from a growler from 03 shared at the Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice 09. This poured black with zero head. The aroma was deep roasted malts, dark chocolate, some alcohol, touches of dark fruits, soy and alcohol. The flavor was similar with some deep roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla and soy notes. The crazy thing was how little the alcohol effected the flavor and palate. This was warming, but did not register as 23%. Very interesting and seemed to hold up pretty well especially for a growler.

Sammy (8631) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2009
Drunk with the brewer, his 2003 or 2004 version. At the Winter Solstice 2009. The brewer is now at Kuhnhenn making his RIS every year. This one had a great smell, it was dark brown with light brown lace dots. Chocolate mostly, with some sourness from the bourbon barrel. Very thick. Some coffee notes there.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, wood, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, leading to a dry, roasted, woody, and alcoholic finish. Thanks CaptainCougar for coming to Denmark and sharing this.

Theis (13393) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle 񢉕 - ABW: 20%) at Papsø’s - Thanks to CaptainCougar. Black - offwhite head. Oily thick liquid - body and mouthfeeling, sweetness, chocolate, alcoholic, coffee, dried fruits, raisins, light smokey, roasted. Too alcoholic - but very nice.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of CaptainCougar. Pours dark brown to black with a fully gone head. Aroma is solid alcohol and roasted dark malty. Roasted malt flavoured, dark and solid alcohol note. Dry and solid alcohol burn in the finish. Way too strong for my liking.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
Black with a tiny beige head. Sweet aroma with hard roasted malt, dark chocolate, espresso and liquerice. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, liquerice and loads of alcohol. Finished with loads of warming alcohol. The alcohol releay overpowered the stout here. But not bad.
