Koelschtrinker (10848) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Der angenehme Malzantrunk steigert sich in den Mittelteil hinein, in dem das Malz deutlich intensiver und vollmundiger wird. Stark schokoladig (herb) und würzig, wenig Zimt. Vergoren fruchtig, unglaublich Vollmundig. Nahezu perfekt! 14/14/13/15//15 Komplexer Malzantrunk, süßlich, deutlich röstig. Malzig bleibend, fast schon unglaublich komplex wie hier mit den Malznoten gespielt wird. Im Hintergrund fnden sich leichte Noten einer Eichenfasslagerung sowie des unbedeutenden Hopfens. Sehr leicht alkoholisch, malzig-bitter (zwischendurch), schokoladig werdend, langer dunkelschokoladiger Abgang. Hammer Bier! 13/14/13/14//14

HenrikSoegaard (10624) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle. 2006 version at Den Tatoverede Enke. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Black colour. Heavy malty and moderate hoppy aroma. Powerfull vanilla and honey notes, no smoke. Moderate bitter flavor. Strong caramellic notes, almost "Bailey-like". Fantastic long moderate bitter finish. Exstremely creamy wonderfull palate. To strong caramellic notes too become truly fantastic, but really great stuff. Way too expensive!

bierkoning (10396) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 2006 bottle. Almost black color, with dark brown foam. Creamy aroma with dark chocolate, ash and roast. Thick bodied, but dryer as expected. initial alcohol is attacked by a flavor bomb, consisting of cream, roasted malt, loads of dark chocolate, ash, oak, beechwood and pineapple. Alcohol burn in the endless aftertaste. Complex and delicious beer, seems heavier than its promised 10% ABV. 8 4 8 5 17 = 4.2 2007 version, tap @ EBF 2008. Flower honey in the delicious aroma, combined with some oak. Licorice, honey and roast in the flavor. Lusciously sweet but still a great complexity. Licorice in the aftertaste. Again: excellent!

[Bottle @ Den Tatoverede Enke to celebrate 600th rating] Black with thick brown head. Aroma is sweet and very vinious with roasted malt, liquerice, coffee and overripe fruits. Rich flavor with roasted malt, chocolate, liquerice and coffee taste. Overripe fruits very viniuos and pleasant alchol notes. Nice!

madsberg (10326) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
Bottled (Thx Bierkönig for sharing). Pitch black coloured. Dense brown head. Roast, spice, apple, chocolate, light coffee and a touch of vanilla and barral. Very balanced nose. Flavour is as good as the aroma. Again the barralaging is quite subdued and balanced. Light cigar (Yes I like that flavour), sweetness, vanilla, spiced, roast and light chocolate. Balance, balance, balance. Flavours are very well adjusted to each other. Medium to full bodied. Chocolate, spice and vanillasweetness mingles in the perfect end. Reminds me a lot of the ordinary Stormaksporter, which I like as much as this. This for sure is a good beer.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph. Shared with Beljohansen. Brewed December 2006. Pours a pitch black colour with a medium mostly diminishing brown creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, nice dark chocolate, dark fruits and alcohol. Very nice thick bit sticky mouthfeel, bit tickeling on the tongue. The flavour is soft with roasted malt, lots of dark chocolate, alcohol, toffee, dark fruits and some liquorice. Lovely roasty malt and chocolate finish. Round robust yet soft Imp. Stout. A gew more years in a cellar would make this brew even better.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2007
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle, vintage 2005. I have stared at the computer now for a long time, it’s starting to get embarrassing.... I still do not fully grasp that I were one of few, who shared this bottle kindly donated by the brewer, HG, and guarded by Omhper.... Thank you, thank you, thank you - this one beer would have been enough to make my trip worth while! The beer is pitch black and the aroma has notes of oak, port wine, roasted malt, coffee and vanilla. The mouthfeel is thick and oily. The flavour has an incredible balance and complexity, and I only can compare the smoothness with velvet and silk against my skin. It has refined notes of oak (not in a clingy way), coffee, vanilla, port wine, licorice, chocolate, the alcohol is well hidden, but gives warmth, and the finish is good, dry and very, very long. What an amazing beer.... 2226

Ratman197 (9984) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Small bottle 2008 poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brownhead. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, oak, dark chocolate, raisins, dates and molasses. Palate was medium to full bodied and smoth with a dry finish. Flavors of bourbon, vanilla, molasses, dark chocolate, dark fruit, light coffee and light oak with a smooth dry lingering chocolate bourbon finish.

Bov (9630) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2006
courtesy of Per Samuelsson - dark black coloured with a little brown foam formed of big bubbles; robust and highly complex aroma: wood and licorice, roasted coffee, chestnuts, prune and a touch of alcohol; thick and slightly oily palate; full-bodied and with a strong but not overwhelming bitterness; very long bitter and salty coffeish aftertaste where more woody, cookie notes can be met along a warming alcohol touch - what a fantastic beer ! complex, powerful but never exuberant

FatPhil (9423) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2011 275ml bottle (Porvoo Harvest/Dark Beer Festival 2007) 2006 vintage Jet black, espresso head. Toffee liquorice vanilla aroma soft but very powerful. Mocca and whisky taste - again very powerful, but quite mellow. Whisky definitely dominates, quite alcoholic. Excellent sipping beer, not for glugging, that’s for sure. Looks like it’s been made to taste of whisky rather than to taste of wood that’s been steeped in whisky, or even to simply age itself. In retrospect, this isn’t vastly superior to any of the other whisky-laced beers, but as my first in the style I was very impressed by it.
