HenrikSoegaard (12047) - 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.

Christian (11983) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2006
100% black with a big frothy off-white head. Traditional roast stout aromas of licorice, chocolate and coffee as well as some fruity notes of dates, raisins and perhaps cherry. Complex dark flavours follows the nose, some acid, some bitterness and a touch too much alcohol prescence. What the commercial deScription happily calls "very lively on the tongue", I’ll call too much carbonation that takes away from the flavour.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Bottle (ZBF2008) (6:5:7:3:13=3.4)
Black, small beige head. Toffee aroma. Rich burnt taste - very aromatic hops and winey too. Massive burnt aftertaste.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Aroma is muchos muchos liquorice. Phil gets soy sauce too. It’s aq very rich aroma with a roast motif, certainly. Black, nice head. Remarkably light in the mouth. Quite carbonated, not a surprise considering the source. Nice finish, leaves you wondering how they managed to make a 9% beer so not heavy. Alas, Anna didn’t write any numbers down, she was scribing this one. So we’ll have to wait for the bottle we have at home to get a numerical 2nd opinion.

Ratman197 (11766) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle poured a nearly opaque brownish black with a LARGE lasting tan head. Aromas of yeast, bitter chocolate, a bit of licorice and hints of dark fruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sour yeast, bitter chocolate, light licorice and a hint of espresso with a lingering sweet finish. Not a bad stout but it needs more body.

Pinball (11704) - 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.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 Bottle. Pours a nice opaque black with a big beige head that appears bubbly, but forms a creamy feel. Aroma is wonderful. Initially fruity, berries, then turns a little musky with a chocolate backbone. Quite spritzy in your mouth, but it still manages to feel creamy. Extremely complex flavour. It kind of feels like a saison/lambic while it is in your mouth (fruity and a touch sour), turning into a nice chocolate stout as you swallow. Berries, chocolate, plums, a touch of coffee. Stunning.
