Duane shared a bottle of this with me. Thanks! Very thick pour that was black as night with a slight head. Strong chocolate and roasted coffee aromas. Low carbonation. Again, roasted coffee and some chocolate flavors, some bitterness from the roasted malt. Some slight hop presence as well. Not quite as complex as I expected it might be, but still a very good breakfast stout.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009 Updated Rating (4.0 overall): 500 ml bottle - 2nd time over the last few days that i’ve revisited one of my top 5 beers, and another one to take a big hit; just not quite what i remember the first time; flavors bitter coffee w/ no sweetness; aromas are there, but flavor is missing; light bodied and thing texture

Original Rating 1/4/08 (4.5 Overall): 500 ml bottle - cracked this open for breakfast on 1/1 to open up the new year; pours thick and jet black with very slight brown head around the edges; deep and rich aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee; flavors that follow are equally thick in strength and yummy goodness; smooth and creamy texture with no hint of bitterness; coffee runs deep in both aromas and flavors; except for the price and health effects, i would love to drink this one every morning

They call this a breakfast beer for a good reason, it really does go well with breakfast. I pours a dark brown/black with little head. Roasted coffee on the nose. Coffee and cocoa with a hint of sweet. Finishes nicely, understated. This is a nice easy drinking stout that doesnít need to slap you in the face for attention.

Sorta boozy flavor. Very roasty and grainy flavor. Pretty hearty brew here. Gets better as I take more sips. This is grows on ya. I like that it was a big beer but only 7.5%. Very drinkabale.

Bottle for rating #2300: Looks like your typical 30W motor oil.   Moderate to large fizzy light brown head, dies somewhat quickly, spotty lacing.   Rich nose, cocoa, coffee beans, campfire, charred wood, ash, subtle hop, and perhaps a little bit of maple syrup.   Semi-sweet combination of cocoa and coffee on the tongue.   Subtle hop bite, some malt like bitterness from the roasting. Very well balanced, extremely well balanced actually.   No one part seems to dominate.   Good meld of flavors.   Smooth, just plain smooth.   Not as thick or viscous as others, but what it lacks in viscosity it makes up for finish.   Certainly not a heavy Stout, and I am thankful for that.   Glad to see the Danes making some kick ass beer.   Lingering cocoa, roasted malts, ash, and coffee.   Very flavorful, easy to drink, and quite a pleasure.   A big thanks to Crosling for selling me one of the few bottles he had left in the secret stash.   If it were possible to add a bit of oak, this thing would be utterly phenominal.   As is, quite good, solid, and highly recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 Bottle. Pours a black colour with a nougat/nutty brown head. Nose is full of coffee, caramel, and dark bitter chocolate. Flavour is again coffee, chocolate, liquorice but also roastiness that almost leads into a smoked taste. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 31, 2007
22oz bottle - Opaque black color with small medium tan color head. Aroma is full of light roast, acidic coffee, light caramel, dark chocolate, hint of smoke. Flavor is malty, fairly roasty, touch of raisens, oak, brandy. Finish is fairly balanced, with the bitterness winning out just a bit. Overall very nice, although I was expecting a bit more given all the hype.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2007
22 oz bottle. BB 12-2007. Deep black beer with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is loaded with coffee. Slightly vegetal character to the nose that isnít entirely pleasant. There is a load of coffeeish character and a heavy oaty richness. There is also a very strong roastiness with a bit of heavy smokiness. The flavour is very roasty with a lot of heavy coffee flavour. As it warms the malts appear more complex with a bit of plum and chewy sweetness. Some dark malts and a bit of toast. Itís a tasty beer, but itís not the greatest coffee beer Iíve had.

Bottle with Mes & tashi at Casparís Christmas Cracker 2007. Many thanks to Mes for suggesting I pick up a bottle of this at GBBF 07. Itís special stuff. Pours a very dark brown. Massive aroma of coffee and dark, dark chocolate. Equally powerful flavour of chocolate, smoke and roasted malt. Smooth in the extreme, itís an utter pleasure to drink.

jdjuice (330) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2007
Drank on Christmas morning. Pours thick and opaque with really nice head. Strong caramel and roastiness on the nose. Very strong coffee, chocolate and roastiness. Not too bitter, which I like. However, not as smooth as I would have preferred.
