Bottle. Black color with a nice creamy head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Mild but great flavour with a lot of roasted taste, ends up a little bitter.

Ungstrup (30970) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2003
A pitch black beer with a beutiful huge chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of chocolate. The flavor is slightly sour combined with bitter chocolate - it ends on a good bitterness. A nice dry stout.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Not entirely black, this has a reddish tint. Very light and dry but not really bitter. Lovely aromatic and slightly smoked. A fresh easy-to-drink beer. 060305

oh6gdx (23182) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 4, 2005
Bottled. Black opaque, big brownish foamy head, thick lacing. At first very roasted aroma, later a bit sweetish barley and malt. Rich carbonation for being a stout. Very bready flavour with hints of roast. Leaves mouth a bit sticky. Otherwise very good, but the carbonation ruins it

Black color; brown, creamy, generous head. Very nice aroma: coffee, roasted malt, bread. Quite good body, a bit too dry. Thank Jens (Ungstrup).

Bottle. A gorgeous looking black beer with a dense. finger-thick, tan head. Peat, licorice, sea, some dried fruits, beefstock, tar and burnt malts in the aroma, quite complex, but sort of too much on the burnt side. The flavor is much the same, but troubled with some vegetal notes. Medium body, rather dry, and a roasted bitterness in the finish. I’m not certain if I like the flavor of this one, but the aroma is rather fancy. 090724
