COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2010
About 50ml from tap. Nice fawn-coloured head atop of a devil-black body. Semi-sweet aroma of roasted, dark chocolate malts and dark fruits sustained by a touch of alcohol. Earthy malts and anise in a rich flavour which also offers dried fruits, slightly roasted. Lasting finish of bittersweet chocolate and an integrated alcoholic tingle. Tasty sample and I’m really looking forward to a whole bottle of this wonderful brew (Copenhagen Beer Festival, 08.05.2010).

Black color, dark brown head. Oaky sweet scent. Sweet, roasted, alcohol taste. Warming alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
2010-08-02. Black body with a creamy brown head. Super rich flavour, fruity alcoholic character, notes of bourbon or brand but ultra smooth. Holy $#!+! Notes of chocolate liqueur or Baileys like flavours, mocha, alcohol is seductive and dangerous. 9+ Aroma is similarly rich, tangy dark fruit, subtle dark malt base, some sort of barrel/alcohol presence, vanilla notes. RICH. 9+ Super smooth medium to full bodied palate. Sufficient alcohol to be a kick in the pants but kind of awesome. I was lamenting the generous pour from the bartender on the first one, and then went back for a second after tasting it. So good.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2010
A Sim rate (tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival): Sharp, whisky aroma but with a creamy edge. Sweet brown sugar & coffee. Appearance is pitch black with a brown head. Burnt toast & roast coffee beans in the amazing flavour. It’s creamy coffee... not with skimmed milk as I make it these days, but made with half-and-half, how I no longer dare. So thick that it sticks to your palate. So, so good!

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Nip bottle, bottled on 5/3/10.. apparently only 96 bottles in the batch. Poured near-black with just about nothing going on head-wise. The aroma was very strong, with rich black malt and licorice roast topped by salty character and ash.. more and more smoke came out as it warmed.. it sort of grew on me, but I didn’t love it. The flavor found burnt, fairly generic black malt roast at the core.. big oxidation, smoked peat, and peppery notes around and throughout.. sourness, smoked malt, and sharp belly warmth in the end. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. this felt like it was past its prime and breaking down.

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle. High creamy and lasting brown head. Pitch black body. Coffee cocoa earth wood bread aroma. Tart liquorice coffee cocoa wood earth smooth and yet powerful body. Alcohol well hidden. Low carbonation. Long bitter aftertaste.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle shared by Kan, thanks! Poured black with a grayish brown head that started at the edges and dissipated completely. Aroma had note of dark grain and chocolate with a good amount of peat and smoke backing. Flavor had even more peat and smoke with a bit of dark chocolate and roast coming through and a hint of backing toffee.

Plovmand (6302) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle. Its pitch black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and loads of sweet caramel. The flavour is very roasted and quite dry. Smoke, chocolate and roasted coffee. Creamy texture. Very nice!

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Coffee, cream, smooth and easy drinking. Some soot, smoke and sourness makes sure this is not cloying.
