4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(On tap) Completely pitch black and opaque with a tiny, light brown head. Intense aroma of roasted malt and sweetish, dried fruit - dates in particular. Extremely full-bodied - you almost have to cut your way through this - but flat, completely flat. Extremely vinous - this is like a good port. The malt base is extreme with notes of cough syrup and a shipload of dried fruit. The sweetness is excessive. The alcohol burn is extreme in the finish. Very delicate but extremely unbalanced. A sipper - over the whole of an evening! 120507

Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Extremely black. Vinous licorice aroma. Sweet and tarry, dense mouthfeel. Thick and chewy, can I get knife and fork, please? Punishingly flavourful with thick licorice and notes of petroleum and lacquer. Potent and viscous. Just enormous.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at KØ07. Fruity and roasted aroma. Black colour. Quite sweet and peppery flavour. Also vinous. Very late and very roasted aftertaste. Strangely, I find the mouthfeel a little thin considering the ABV. Sorry to be a drag, but this is just not my kind of beer, it is very rough.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007. I LOVE THIS. Black - brown head. Chokolate-power. Dried dark fruits, plums, raisins, plums, brown sauce, syrup, soya, oily, used motor oil, light roasted, brown sugar, a bit portwine like, high very nice hoppy, and a lot more. A very big and smooth mouthfeeling. Could easily be too mush - but it works very well !!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Jet black beer with some tan head. Coffee, chocolate notes, vanilla notes, hoppy bitterness, alcohol and syrupy sweetness in the aroma. The flavor has alcohol, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, hoppy bitterness and sweetness. Quite acidic and astringent in the mouth, silky and full. Long finish with coffee, vanilla and hops. It’s a bit on the sweet side, I like ’em drier, but it is a lovely beer anyway. It’s a pity it’s only an experiment. (070512)
