Danish: Sort Sol kræver sin mand selv om den er let drukket. En stout med en diskret smag af karamelmalt og et kraftigt bid af mørkristede malte. Den unikke humling fremhæver maltsmagen. Sort Sol kan efter brygmesterens mening drikkes når som helst til hvad som helst. Brygget af bygmalte og humle.

Bottle. A dense but small, dark beige head sits on top of a clear, reddish brown body. The aroma has dried fruits and roasted malts, some alcohol notes. Slightly toffee-like. The flavor is almost buttery roasted, with cocoa, dark chocolate and some dried fruit notes. Smooth and full-bodied, quite dry even though it’s a sweet brew. A bit uncertain what I think of this one, it’s nice, but with some aromas and flavors I don’t appreciate too much. Overall, I could drink more of it. 110524

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 25, 2011
It’s black with a red hue and a light-brown, creamy head. The aroma is light with notes of chocolate, roasted malt and light licorice. The mouth-feel is soft. The flavour is moderately sweet and dry with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and light licorice. It’s not complex, and could be more interesting, but flawless as such.

Rated in the spring 2010: Served in a bottle. Nice aroma with a lot of different odours, but nervertheless the beer doesn’t lives up to the expected taste as the former-mentioned odours fades away and leaves an ordinary medium-expensive beer to be drinked.

Black with a small off-white head. Dark aroma of licorice and chocolate. Sweet dark flavour dominated by licorice. Full body. Middle of the road, but of good quality

Rating #384, bottle from Fish and Beer

Black-brown beer with an airy but long lasting head. Very malty and chocolaty aroma with a bit of tar. Flavor; hmm.... well-brewed but boring? Coffee is obvious at first, but then very anonymous roasted malts are taking over with a bit of sweetness, end ending in a medium bitter finish. I can’t precisely define this sweetness as chocolate, but I think that was the intention. Coffee and roasted malts in the aftertaste together with a bit alcohol. Medium body and soft mouthfeel. All in all a bit boring stout, but clearly better than average beer.

Pinball (11944) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2010
dark brown, smooth light brown head. roasted, hoppy aroma. mild, caramel. pretty mild aroma that is sort of sweetish and sort of roasted. flavor is roasted and hard roasted grains, some sweetness, faint metal. mouthfeel is soft and good, aftertaste is dark caramelly, roasted, charchoal. pretty decent stout, velvety, but in the end a bit boring.
