faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 10, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice black colour with a dark brown creamy mostly lasting head. Great aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and some liquorice. Good sticky well filling mouthfeel. The flavour is smooth and just great with good roasted closed burned malt, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and hops. the finish is roasty and quite bitter. Great brew indeed!

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2007
Big grayish beige creamy head. Deep dark red body. Metallic burnt caramel aroma. Deep burnt roasty taste with coffee notes. Some chocolate. Dry burnt aftertaste. Not bad, but a bit one-dimensional and boring. (0.33l bottle.)

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle. Deep, reddish brown, clear body with a nice, lasting tan head. Burnt malt, coffee, "dryness", notes of mocha and dark chocolate is what I dragged in through my nose. It has a taste of burnt malt, both coffee- and hop-bitterness, malt and a vague fruityness. Medium, drying mouthfeel and a long bitter finish with some coffee. A nice beer, but a bit boring and one-dimentional. (070314)

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Great aroma and great appearance. Nice thick head that you could eat with a spoon. Mouthfeel is a little harsher than I am used to and extra bitter aftertaste. Flavor is nice, very very smokey

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2007
Pours a clear black (you know what I mean) with a brown head. Aroma is quite smokey, with a milky sweetness and some caramel. Quite suprised by the amount of smoke really. The flavour is fairly dry, again quite smokey and caramely with some roast malt flavours too, perhaps chocolate more than anything, towards the finish it leans to the thin side and the finish is downright watery. So promising at the start, such a bad finish. I guess thats guinness.
