3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
More bitterness than most chocoalte stouts. Fairly light, pronounced cocoa aroma. Coffee, vanilla, lingering taste, which maskes the alcohol strength.
Actually very good, though I’m not in the habit of praising Carlsberg products!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml thanks to after4ever. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. Chocolate aroma. Medium body with light carbonation. Licorice and a touch of chalk in the finish. This almost seems like a stout trying to be a porter.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2007 Darkbrown with a nice brown head. Not as black as other stouts. Aroma of forrest fruits, roasted malts and sweet port wine. Medium body, definetly not as heavy as lots of other stouts out there, but the complex smooth flavor makes up for it. Port wine again, chocolate and salty notes and with a warming finish. A stout hold up by the yeast and chocolate rather than the malts. Really my type of beer!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500. Thanks, Maria! Dark, grainy black body with thick, sudsy light tan head of some depth. Little lacing. Modest roast and toast palate, not really super pronounced or all that complex, but wonderfully soft and easy drinking. This is more of a gentle introduction to the world of stouts--odd that they call it a sweet stout, though. Maybe I’m congested but I’m not picking up much in the way of malty sugariness or anything in the way of an adjunct.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015 Bottle, 6.8%. Bittersweet aroma, some dark bread. Very dark brown colour. OK stable light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet, getting slightly salty. Starts off with some liquorice, then gets more chocolaty in the aftertaste. Gets a bit sour after a while. Not as good as I remembered. 6 3 6 3 13
Bottle, 6.8%. 11 years past BB date. Oxidised aroma. Almost black colour, clear red shine. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is vinous and oxidised. Drinkable for its age, but to me it tastes more or less like any 11-year-old beer. 5 3 5 3 9
