Handbottle 50 cl. Courtesy of daknole. Pours an opaque pitch black with a brown head. Aroma is dark burned malts and vanilla with a whiff of whisky. Solid body, hard roasted malt and vanilla while the oak doesn’t really come through that much. Malt bitter finish. Thanks for the treat Dak! 230410

Cheers Dave! Opaque black beer, thick chocolate coloured foamy head. Light malty nose with a slight metallic note. Soft dry palate. Coffee immediately presents, creamy coffee but with a bitter edge. A little red fruit, well buried - cherry identifiable. A fresh lacto sweetness runs throughout. Subtle whisky and just a little hop in the finish.

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
Tasting at Papsø
Black color; brownish creamy head. The aroma shows some wet cardboard, roasted malts, light coffee. Quite thick and oily mouthfeel; strong roasted malt and chocolate flavor, some coffee, with a boozy finish. Unimpressive.

Oakes (12429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2012
Super inky, mega black with a very dark brown head. Most stouts are lighter in colour than that head. The aroma is rich, like a DL or Expedition. Hoppy, bitter with super rich malt, chocolate, Cuban coffee on the palate. Molasses, too. For such an intense beer, this is balanced and quality.
