Wow what an oily drip, this looked like a good beer from the start and was one at the end (sportscast like review here). The malt and oatmeal barley ingredients are shooting and they score points for flavor. Man this is tasty. Smooth though without any elements which accentuate a high bitterness ratio here I have to say. I see where breakfast comes in even though I’m drinking this at night. I can’t write any more about how smooth this one is and well crafted.

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 doesn’t 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.

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.
