Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Black with a creamy head. The aroma is sweetish with notes of coffee. The flavour is nice, but could have more personality and body. I think it’s a bit on the thin side. The finish brings me notes of licorice and a nice and lasting bitterness. I might sound like I don’t like it, but I do. It’s nice, but average and without any unexpected surprises.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Straightforward, balanced, and unobtrusive. Medium to light-bodied. Disappointing in many departments and drinkable.

fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Clear dark brown / black color with a average frothy good lacing fully lasting light brown head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, coffee / mocca, roasted, light chocolate. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat. Pleasure to drink but it looks as if it will be with more flavor..
