BeerandBlues2 (10784) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Pours opaque with a small bit of dark brown at the bottom of the glass with a tall frothy tan head, quite fizzy. Ends with excellent spotty lacing. Dark roasted caramel malt and toffee initial aromas with a big coffee push and some vanilla notes. Faint floral hop, raisins, neat the end. Flavor is dark chocolate and coffee with a hoppy body(fruit) and dark molasses and alcohol lingering. Full bodied and dark, somewhat dry and astringent.

madsberg (10781) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2003
Bottled: Almost black as a moonless winternight in Scandinavia. Huge light brown head that last long. Aroma is a palate of impressions. Sweet roastyness is the dominant impression, but coffee comes to mind as well. Flavour is very coffeeish and roasty. Pleasant bitterness imediately on the tongue and palate. Alcahol is nicely hidden but a little delicious alcaholburnt is present on the tongue. This is a nice surprise, that I will revisit whenever available.
