4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a dark brown opaque body with medium tan head that sticks around like the creme from an espresso. Aroma is crazy sweet with chocolate malt and nuttiness--a touch of wood. Tastes insanely smooth and creamy; a ton of chocolate malt, complex sugars, and some coffee notes to round it out. Low carbonation allows for the complexities to come through unscathed. Minimal hop; and alcohol presence almost non-existent. A lasting bitterness that comes in late and stays for a while. One of the best beers I have had to date.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Bottle. Pours a rich oily black with a velvety brown soft fluffy head. Permeating aromas of V.S.O.P. brandy, baking chocolate, and Guatemalan coffee. Creamy smoothness. Perfect amount of carbonation on the palate. Very rich pronounced flavors. Dark chocolate, fine muscat wine, black walnuts, small touch of ginger, black treacle, dried mission figs. Ultra rich, luxurious and thoroughly satisfying. Outstanding!
Heartbreaking news of the new brewery ownership.

Flaske 2006+2007: Kaffe, Ristet malt, mørk chokolade, let røg. Fyldig, sød og meget cremet. Bitterheden fra den ristede malt samt noget frisk fra humlen passer godt til det cremede. Masser af smag.

Pitch black in color with a two finger head. Aromas of heavy roast, burnt sugar, chocolate, and slight smoke. Taste is full bodied, dark chocolate, roasted malts, slightly bitter, with a slightly less than long finish. A fantastic porter.
