33 cL bottle thanks to thewolf/dunkpigen. Pitch black with no head. Aroma is roasted malty with a mild spice note and a mild smoke accent. Flavour is smoked and hardroasted malt with a distinct dark fruity note coming through. Mild yeasty touch into the finish. Smooth yet with a little bite.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours completely black with a tiny, creamy, brown, film head. Sweet aroma, some fat maltiness, light smoke, coffee, nuts and dark chocolate. Medium carbonation, rather light for the style. Flavour is sweet at first, then fat chocolate and roasted malts before finishing in a wonderful, long, dry, bitter coffee note. Great!

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2008
Big dark brown head. Opaque black body goes dark brown at edges. Sugary milky cocoa and coffee aroma with toffee notes. Balanced and harmonic. Dry-sweet chocolatey roasty chocolate pudding taste with hoppy coffee notes. Some faint alcohol notes. Long dry-sweet aftertaste of the same. Lovely! Surprisingly light and drinkable.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle, Tegnérs Gömställe, Stockholm, Sweden. A dark brown, nearly black brew with a small, filmy light brown head. Roast and burnt fruit aromas, with some cocoa as well. Flavor has nice balance, low roast and hop bitterness. Silky and sweeter, with chocolate and cocoa flavors. Thin texture. A solid beer, but nothing very special.
