Nice black pour with a tan head. Beautiful coffee aroma. Definitely added to the list of beers I want to wake up and start drinking, probably to adverse effects. Flavor is sweet coffee, burnt malts, and a little roasted bitterness. Fairly nice body. Beer is pretty good, similar but a little better than Bell’s Java Stout.

Bomber. Pours a opaque black viscous oily texture color with a small brown head. Nose of coffee, chocolate, oak, and some roasted malt. Initial taste is sweet but not too cloying balanced by touch of coffee and roasted malt. Mid palate demonstrates some vanilla/oak. Finishing with a mild chocolate and roasted malt. Full bodied. Above average palate duration. Well balanced and very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Good brew, sampled at Darkness Day. Dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma is coffee dominant with some chocolate and bourbon. Flavor is heavy, dark coffee with roasted chocolate and vanilla. Coffee is a bit overpowering but not too bad.

Deep pitch black coloured body with a thinnish light brown head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, brandy , coffee and roasted malt - all with some sweet raisin overtones. Full-bodied; Strong sweet flavour with a good potent roasty body and a nice malty finish - alcohol comes through, but not overly so. Aftertaste remains nice - bitter, yet sweet. Overall, a great beer - one that I’ve saved for a while, but for a good day...I drank this beer in celebrating my first marathon - the Marine Corps Marathon on 26-October-2008, purchased from West LakeView Liquors in Chicago, Illinois on 28-November-2007, sampled on 26-Oct-08, and would definitely be recommended to others!

Pours black, with a dark brown head. Smells like roasted coffee with some floral hops. Thankfully not as strong as I thought it would be. Tastes like coffee, chocolate, general roasted malts but not too burnt. Ends with some bitter hops and roasty bitterness. Thick and smooth, I could drink many more in the future.

Bottle. Pours a light blocking black with a frothy brown head. Not much to the nose, a bit of burnt popcorn. Bitter and burnt sweet coffee flavor, yummy!! I also pickup some hoppy pine flavors. A very burnt, tobacco dry mouthfeel. Great beer!

66 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. SE21/08. BB 12 12 2007.

App.: Black with a good mocha head. Aroma: Strong dark chocolate and black coffee, some vanilla, a bit green, some milk chocolate and coconut. Palate: Medium-full body, very soft carbonation, smooth and silky. Flav.: Plenty of dark chocolate and coffee, a bit of oxidation, some green hops; fairly dry with some bitterness.

Tasty, but I think it’s a bit tired. Need a fresh bottle.

Thanks to Dan who picked this up in Ann Arbor. Bello Vino is a life saver. Poured black with a nice tan head. Aroma was fruity, with lots of smoke. Taste was the same, even more smoke, and some coffee. Chocolate came through as well. Not nearly as much coffee as I had expected, but the smoke would lend itself very well to sausage links and real maple syrup.

Great nose, beautiful head. Kept getting more and more flavorful. Too bad I only had one. Becoming a real fan of Danish beer.
