Can @ home. Black appearance with a big, fluffy, dark brown head. Somewhat boozy, roasty, dark malty, very aromatic and powerful nose. Boozy, very roasty, dark burnt malty, powerful flavor with a very roasty and fairly boozy finish. I donít enjoy it very much but I can see how it can be appreciated.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Itís with excitement that I pour this one, that I have wanted to find for such a long time. Itís pitch black with a very big, creamy, nougat colored and stable head. The aroma has a lot of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavour has ligth sweetness, lots of chocolate and some dark fruits. The sweetness is nicely balanced by a light bitterness, and the overall impression is very, very nice. Itís a delcious beer, and I have a flock of them in my cellar for maturing, and I look forward to following them.

rosenbergh (9685) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 3, 2010
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 330 ml bottle. BBE Feb 2010. From KÝbenhavn, Denmark.
Pitch black colour with average to big creamy light brown head. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, ash and liquorice in aroma. Flavour is much milder with roasted malt, some coffee, dark chocolate, salt and some bitter hops. Pretty good stout.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2011
11.2 oz can. Was skeptical about this one for awhile because of the can form factor. Almost entirely pitch-black color, thin light-brown head. Some good, thick lace. Stouty-malt aroma. Roasty, with alcohol aftertaste. Some dark fruit. Carbonation is a bit rough, but not too strong. Odd, somewhat medicinal bitter taste. This is decent, but Iím clearly not as wowed as everyone else... Maybe itís the can. Improves a bit as it warms, some bitter chocolate comes out. Some sediment on the bottom.

As black as night! Dry mouthfeel with liqourice tang. Good roast notes and not too sweet. Very nice.
