Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
(Bottle 28,4 cl) Clear reddish brown with a rough, beige head. Sweet aroma of roasted malts and alcohol. Medium body, sugar sweet malts and molasses, alcohol and a metallic edge + and odd, fusty flaw. Surprisingly some bitterness shows in the finish. This won’t get me hooked. 090207

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2007
Bottled. Very dark brown colour, with small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, sweet coffee, slight smoke and alcohol. Flavour is syrup, slightly roasted malts, and slight alcoholic warmness. Lots of syrup in flavour and aftertaste. Not that good... Sweet and thin.

anders37 (16595) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle. It pours a nearly black colour with a quich fading tan coloured head. It has a little roasty smell, hints of coffee malt too. The taste is sweet. It is also roasted and some milky taste. hints of coffe and licorice too. The aftertaste is sweet and fruity. Not a bad beer but i like my stouts not as sweet as this one.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Very sweet black beer. Moderate carbonation. A little cream in the dry finish. Very drinkable sweet dark beer.

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
Dark amber color, brownish head. Light aroma, malt, roasted malt and apples. Quite sweet in the front, nice mouthfeel; maltier and more equilibrated later, with a subtle fruitness (light banana and apples); sweet caramel and delicate roasted flavor. Simple, but I like it.
