Tmoney99 (11231) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured a black color with a huge frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good roasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Full body with a smooth sticky texture. Complex roasted dark fruit stout flavor with a medium bittersweet smooth finish of moderate duration. Very well balanced dark fruity stout.

Koelschtrinker (11167) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
ZBF 2008 Voluminöser Malzgeruch, etwas alkoholisch, was sofort von Röstmalz überdeckt wird. Röstiger Malzantrunk, eine leichte Süße mildert die hintergründige Bitterkeit. Erkennbar hopfig, angenehm harmonisch, die Bitterkeit wird zum trockenen Abgang hin stärker. Test vom 11.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,11,10,12,-,11 - 11,21

HenrikSoegaard (10980) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Creamy light borwn excellent fully lasting head. Brown colour. Moderate malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Really great. Moderate bitter flavor but too powerfull coffee-notes. Long finish. Oily palate but way too fizzy.

Pinball (10972) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2009
bottle from ølbutikken. pours brown, is black in the glass, giant thick brown smooth head. strange salty/sour aroma. not what i’d expect in a stout. faint chocolate. perhaps the salty aroma is from licorice? flavor sour, mixed with the ordinary stout flavors. tart. licorice. slight smoked stuff in the aftertaste. warming up it seems to be more balanced. the salty lime taste lingers in the background and makes it all a bit surreal.

madsberg (10524) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2004
Bottled @ Plan B, Copenhagen: Dark brown almost black coloured. Dense medium sized chocolate brown head. Awesome looks. Fruit, ligth alcahol, coffe and roast notes in the aroma. Flavour is very sharp and offensive. Loads of liqourice and very roasted. Not as smooth, as I prefer, but still quite pleasant. Ends on a fruity liqouricenote with a light alcaholburnt on the palate. This is a difficult beer. Somehow I like it, but it sure has its dark sides.
