5lickv1c (112) - DENMARK - DEC 15, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 One year old on tap at mikkeller and friends. Good aromas of coffee, chocolate and sweet almonds. Very full bodied beer with a nice sweetness and a lot of complex flavors. Much superior to this years version on bottle but that is of course to be expected.

Melker (206) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2013
Almost black beer with a nice mocha head. Plain milk chocolate aroma, maybe just a little bit roasted and some christmas spices but not much at all. Dry taste, ends with some sourness. Medium/thin body.

KennethArd (235) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and smoke. Black with very large, long lasting, creamy brown head. Tastes like chewing a very dark piece of chocolate while you smoke a cigar. I would prefer some more sweetness and creaminess. Medium body with soft carbonation and bitter finish.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Pitch black color with small brownish head. Mild aroma, some roasted malt and some aniseed. The mouthfeel is leaner and drier than expected; roasted malt flavor, roasted almonds, some ashed, light touch of dark chocolate, strong bitterness, a bit spicy.
Not impressive.

Fancy_Clown (15) - London, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Earthy and spicy on the nose, coffee undertones. Jet black with a tan head, looks like night. Bitter coffee flavor initially which gives way to a smooth dryness. Vegetal tones. Weird taste, but pleasant. Coffee aftertaste that lingers long after a mouthful. Smooth and slightly thick palate. Overall a very good and unique beer.

caesar (5128) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Tap @ Beer Temple, medium sample. Dark color, medium creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, slight fruity, biscuit and cookie. Thick body. Strong flavor with chocolate and biscuit again. Wonderful beer!

jmgreenuk (4357) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2013
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is rich red berry fruit which really pushed everything else aside. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big liqourice, spicy pepper palate. I could drink this all night long ... In my dreams of course :-)
