A black stout which is brimming over with roast malt flavours, balanced with a complex hop blend. Really smooth with roasted aftertaste.

Wow this is the best example of a dry stout Ive sampled thus far. This blows Guinness and Murphy’s out of the water! A good roasted malt and coffee aroma. Dark black apperance with a large beige head. The flavor is dry roasted malts, coffee, chocoate, and espresso. This has alot more body than your typical nitro stuff. Anyone that still thinks Guinness is the king of the dry stout style, you need to try this!

Medium black, fading brown head. Aroma was of yummy milk chocolate. Bit of a thinner body than expecting based on aroma, chocolate, a hint of something tangy, and that was about it. So-so.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2004
Bottled: Redbrown coloured. Dense brownish head. Lasting. Roasty and chocolatish aroma. Full and malty. Flavour is weak. This beer is all about aroma. Light roastyness, smoke and a distinct watery charachter. Light fruity and light bitter end. Not a top notch dry stout.

Black as night pour with a creamy, lactic, off-white head with sticky lacing. Bitter Coffee aroma with a touch of licorice. Has a bit of a chocolately flavor with some coffee mixed in - notice a bit of frutiness as well. Creamy mouthfeel, but the lacticity gets just a bit cloying near the end and turns a bit too "earthy" tasting. Still, not a bad stout though.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2004
Bottled. DBF 2004. Dark brown. Rich flavour. Bready(vörtbröd) and richly malty stout this. Münchener malts, yes? Dry finish.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 20, 2004
(on bottle)This is a really nice PORTER I´ll say. Lots of burned wood, smoke and heavy, dry fruits in the aroma, an good dry sip a and dry aftertaste. Like a real PORTER! Should it be judged as a stout, I´ll say that is misses the smoothiness totally.

Very dark amber, almost black. Aroma is from cocoa and licorice. Flavor brings chocolate as well as cocoa and licorice. A little creamy feeling.
