12 fl oz bottle. Pours pitch black with a medium duration dark brown head. Aroma is distinct hard/dark roasted malt, burned breadish and dark and rich chocolate. Dark roasted to burned malt flavour, solid bitter chocolate and slight tarish. Acidic hard roasted malt flavoured. Bitter, dry and acidic finish. Too hard roasted for my liking.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Comes close to being pitch-black, completely opaque. Small, light brown head. Nose full of burned malt, flavours full of burned malt and lots of bitterness from the burned malt. Surprisingly light-bodied - almost a bit watery - with a very dry finish. Has some vinous touches. 170705

omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2002
Extremely black. Very roasty, very malty, very bitter. Full bodied with salty licorice flavour. Is this a schwarzbier on steroids or baltic style porter? I’d say the latter, but in any case it is a good beer. Thanks PsychProf for sending me this rare beer!

Opaque black beer. Semi soft and quite a dry palate. Medium roasted malt with a trace of chocolate. A light touch of hops towards the end. Semi bitter aftertaste. Not bad - a grower. Original rating 3

31st August 2009
Tasting at Mes and Sims flat. Opaque black beer. Dry palate. Rich dark malt, chocolate and a little marmite. Finishes soft and dry. Much better than previous sample.
