21/07 RBESG Grand Tasting, 0.33 l bottle. It poured pitch black body with smaller brownish head. Nice strong coffee, licorice and alcoholic aroma. Flavor was sweet, slightly bitter and sour, with roasted malts dominating, e.g. coffee, chocolate, licorice. Alcohol wasn’t too hidden, it was sharp, but extremely heavy body was quite successful in smoothing it. Long finish, of course, with lot of chocolate, caramel, licorice and alcohol. I liked this one very much, although it would certainly be much better aged. What a delicacy would it be!

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Coal black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head that never dissipates. The nose presents luxuriant notes of fudge, espresso, chocolate creme and a gentle note of cinnamon flanked by a trace of singed marshmallow. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor displays great balance amongst all its decadence - dark chocolate and espresso really stand out. More chocolate creme and suggestions of pouch tobacco intermingled with singed marshmallow. Silky smooth with no rough edges. Finishes mildly bitter, scorched and a touch minerally. Big-time kudos go out to Plovmand for shipping this world class brew across the pond!

Black with a dense inch of brownish foam. Aroma is mild roasty with hints of caramel and toffee. Some nuts.. Taste is roasty with mild coffee and chocolate. Raisins and dark fruits in the back with a mild bitter finish. Very mellow and pleasant. Full body and slightly oily on the palate. Soft carbonation.

Cheers to Papso for this bottle. Black with dark head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor follows the aroma but with strange probably woody acidity. Good carb and consistency, very nice beer.

Pours black with a smooth small brown head. The look is just amazing! Smells of caramel, coffee, roasted malts and hints of liquorice. Heavy sweet, quite dry, roast and toast, coffee, some smoke and tar. Heavy bitter, asfalt and earth. Full body, very oily texture, soft carbonation. A very nice IS, very dark flavors and aroma, a beer that please my palate
