75cl bottle, bought a couple of years ago. It says on the bottle that it ages well and they weren't wrong. It pours pitch black with little head. Very nice rum smell. Taste is wonderfully soft and smooth.

Bottle @ Rene’s house, courtesy of camons. Thanks Rene! Black appearance with a reddish brown head. Sweet caramel, chocolate, raisin/plum, mild rum aroma. Fairly roasty, mild roasty, big dark chocolate malty, moderate rum, a bit boozy, somewhat spicy, fruity flavor with a slightly boozy finish. A little strong but fun to drink.

Bottle from Ølkonsortiet, Ålborg. Pours pitch black with a huge foamy tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is smooth with a soft mouthfeel, strong roasted dark malts, tar and ashy. Weak in the rum department, but still quite enjoyable.

Opaque black beer, short lived chocolate coloured head. Light soft and dry palate. Rich dark malt, unsweet dark chocolate. Unsweet woody tones, minerals. Not a bad stout but where is the rum? maybe a light trace of it in the finish. Whisper of banana. Stands on it’s own merit but was hoping for much more.
