Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2005
A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, and chocolate, as well as light wood notes. The finish is like a good bitter dark dessert chocolate.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Sharp aroma I canít really place, but it smells vaguely of cheese wax. Dark brown to black with a MASSIVE mocha head. Bitter fore with some very mild roastiness and even milder chocolate notes in the middle and finish. Body is thin giving this an almost porter-like feel.

Almost opaque black, not much head. Slightly hoppy aroma with strong milk chocolate presence. Not really strong nose. Chocolaty, medium-bodied, despite of roastiness a bit bland. Roasted aftertaste.

Bottled. Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Wonderful chocolaty, roasted malty aroma with hints of cream (fudge). Chocolate, roasted malt and some soapish hints in flavour. Also some wooden hints in flavour. The flavour is kind of weak link in this one though.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2005
12 oz. bottle. very dark pour with a tan head. the head fades to a slight ring as the beer warms for a few minutes in my glass. aroma hints of coffee, chocolate and some vanilla bean. flavors are pretty much the same, but they just donít seem to come together in an even or balanced way.

(Bottled@Oliver Twist) Very dark brown color with a small, fading but lacy head. Roasted aroma of creamy milk, coffee and malt. Roasted-malty, ashy and lactic flavor with coffee.
