bottle from the beer shop at viktoriagade. very dark brown, brown head that soon dissapears. dusty aroma, hard roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate. flavor is very nice, light, hard roasted malts, bitterness from hops, but not at all in the way , good balance, reminds me slightly of the way a very well brewed schwarzbier would taste, but has a little bit more sweet stoutish notes. super drinkable, great job.

Bottle from Craft. This one was surprisingly thin in the body. Some nice notes of roasted malts. It was easy to drink, but just missing something to give it that WOW factor.

Drunk 09/08/14 at the end of the night wi cam. day of sanding done, we had this on the balcony with the bacon stout. it pours black with a tan head. aroma of fresh coffee, vanilla, chocolate sauce. tastes pretty weird. its super sweet right away. toffee, raisins, coffee. then theres just a fuzzy mouthfeel with a slightly sour bitter aftertaste. like all the good malty flavour was missing from the middle. felt thin and without depth which is a shame. makes me wanna try more sweet stouts tho

Bottle from trade with Bamsen78 - many thanks, Marcin! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with smooth head and medium body. Aroma of malt and cream with some nutty hints. Taste of malt, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, icecream, milk and torf. Easy drinkable with a smooth finish. Nice one but hoped for more. Probably too sweet for me.
