Pour is black with a thick cocoa colored head. Maybe even a slight hint of orange in the head. Aroma reminds me a lot of Rogue Shakespeare. Complex and nice. Coffee is the ingredient of the day here, although it is well balanced with oats, vanilla, slight smoke, and chocolate as well. Very well crafted and good without the alcohol kick. Reminded me a lot of Shakespeare, one of my highest rated of the non imperial stouts.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a fizzy brown head, that took several minutes to go down. Fizzy brown lacing on the glass that quickly dissipates. The aroma is of dark malts, coffee. The flavor is full of roasted malts, tons of coffee and just a hint of baker’s chocolate. I was not overwhelmed by this one, but there is a lot of potential. I can’t wait to age one of these to see if it improves.

Pours dark brown with a medium size tan head. Some minor lacing as well. Aroma of coffee and chocoale. Taste is of roasted coffee, chocolate, light hops. Mouth is big, dry, and carbonation is mild. Finish is lightly bitter. Not a bad brew that would go really well with most deserts.

Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Bottle, pours an opaque, black body with generous creamy, dark brown head. Aroma of roasted/burnt dark malts, rich coffee along with hints of hops, smoke, and cocoa. Strong burnt malt taste along with a strong espresso flavor. Bitter coffee finish; thick mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours deep black with a small chocolate milk colored head. The aroma is smoke and expresso. This is my first stout and I felt I would be initimidated by an overpowering taste. Preconceptions can be very misleading. This stuff is so silky smooth and incredibly balanced. Drank about 1/4 of it with warm brownie and ice cream, the rest I didn’t want anything to intefere with my palate. The taste is coffee with such minor bitterness that goes down so easily. It’s a great feeling to have unlofty expectations and to get totally blown away.

bottle thanks to bullzeye. deep black pour with a thin espresso bean head. nice lacings and a great smell of roasted malts and big coffee notes. nice thickness and a great taste of coffee in the finish. the malts are definitely there but they’re definitely not the stars here.

bomber from a trade with hogtownharry. pours pitch black with a midsized tan head. perfect stout appearance. aromas are sweet roasted malt, coffee, touch of smokiness. flavours are similar with bitterness from coffee and hops. a wonderful brew. worthy of its hype. thanks harry.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Bottle. Color is really dark with a nice creamy brown head. Mouthfeel isnt as heavy as expected,a bit watery but still nice. Taste is really coffee dominated with some smokey tones and some vanilla.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle. Dark brown/almost black color with a large light brown head. Aroma is dominated by the coffee together with some dark chocolate, roasted mat and smoke. Flavour is also very coffee-dominated, but there’s also dark chocolate, tobacco, liqourice, smoke and even some milky/creamy notes. Behind this dark flavours there’s some aromatic hoppy notes and decent bitterness which remains in the mouth for a while. Mouthfeel is great. Very smooth though all strong coffee flavours. Not extremely filling, but still very good. Drinkability is high for such a "dark beer" with many complex flavours. Outstanding beer.
