stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
Sampled at EBF2008. Pours a black beer with a brown head. The aroma is roasted, alcohol and malt. The flavor is roasted, raisin and alcohol. The beer is very big in taste, and there is no doubt that this beer would gain a lot by aging.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Draught at EBF. Black, brown espresso head. Syrupy, alcoholic aroma, tar, rubber oak. Flavor is spruce, resin, sweet burned malts, tar and alcohol. Great balance for a beer this big, the alcohol didn’t bother at all. Can’t wait to get my hands on the bottles.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Had this at European Beer Festival, Kobenhaven 12-09-08. Poured very dark with creamy head. Really, really full flavoured, thick almost chewy absolutely gorgeous. There is vanilla, port, some hoppiness whips around, really thick and indulgent beer, quite, quite lovely. As good as this is I reckon with a bit of age on it it will improve quite considerably.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008
[EBF @ Copenhagen, September 2008] Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma was quite strong and dominated by alcohol, with roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, English liquorish, dried fruit. Full bodied with an average carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Heavy bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering burned bitter alcoholic finish.

Draught at EBF. Frothy off-white fair mostly deminishing head. Black colour. Powerfull malty and hoppy aroma. Chocolate and roasted notes. Heavy bitter complex flavor. Long powerfull vinius finish. Way too alcoholic to be nearly perfect, but still a very good beer.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours utterly and completely black, no head. Aroma is super vinious, powerfully roasted, light coffee and good chocolate notes. Super oily mouthfeel with subdued carbonation. Super vinious and warming flavours, lots of tar and soy sauce. Also roasted, chocolate and wonderful coffee. Brilliant, warming, staying aftertaste. An afternoon delight, indeed.
