Countbeer (4552) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle: Man I love this bottle: a pull-the-cap-off and a nice glass/iron thumb imprint of holding the bottle better, Looks cool. Nice brown head on top of a black colored beer. Smell honey, spices, honey liquorice and a hint of toffee. Taste liquorice, a good firm bitterness, hint of coffee, roasted malts and roasted barleys and a hint of hops. Nice bitter aftertaste with hints of liquorice coffee and herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, watery body and texture. It’s like a mix of liquorice and bitterness, not bad, but too much liquorice, just strange...

IluvatarMilan (275) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2011
Pours a pitch black body with a small tan head. Rather intense nose with strong sweet and caramel notes. Body Is mcu more bitter, strong chocolate and coffee notes, not very full-bodied but it doesn’t distract from the taste. Aftertaste has some hints of tobacco and honey.

Bottle 33cl from Papsoe thanks a lot. A dark beer with good head, nose is chocolate like. Aroma is on coffee and roasted malt, good round chocolate finish, a bit acrid, licorice finish. A robust stout.

suprchunk (2269) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Black pour with a big tan head. The head pretty much fades quickly and leaves lacing as proof it was there. Malty, chocolate, vanilla, oaky aroma. Same with the taste. Smooth and creamy. Very good. Imperial stout-like without the high ABV. Very good drinker.

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2011
Flaske: Sortbrun øl med et lille skumhoved. Brændt malt i duften. Lidt for tynd mundfylde. Smagen er brændt og bitter, ellers ret uinteressant.

SudsMcDuff (5894) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Got from the DrinkStore in Dublin, thanks for bringing it home ma.. . Pours a deep brown .. medium head, sticky light lacing .. . light roast and light tar- wow, so much lighter in roast than the original release, and the mouth is a touch lighter too .. . still good but not as good as the original .. . . Well, ma, I guess you can sit on the new driveway and hope an amusing black family comes along.
