Bottle @ home. Aroma is deep roast, some chocolate and light vanilla, some nutty and malty notes in the finish. Flavour is creamy very roasty black malt, tons of liquorice, faint smoky note, light chocolate and vanilla. More roast, ash. Very burny and roasty this one. After a while it’s get a lot better. Very nice.

angel77 (1017) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2013
Botella de 33 cl. En casa 21-12-13 Sabores a tostados y bastante quemados algo especiados con algo de café y cacao también. Cuerpo medio con espuma algo oscura persistente. Aromas tostados y maltosos muy especiados. No está mal, tal vez demasiado especiada. Segunda vez suene la tomo y no se sí habrá una tercera.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a smallish ’desert tan’ head. Carbonation is almost nonexistent. Aroma: Pretty straightforward, this one. Lots of biscuity malts, touches of coffee and dark fruits (chokeberry springs to mind), and a wee bit of booze. Taste: a really smooth entrance - more oven-cooked biscuits, some caramelized sugars and fudge. Finish is more rough, showcasing impressive, powerful hops. Aftertaste is prominently long and bitter Good beer! Hops are the strongest part of it, in my opinion. Love the cap, and really hope to try the BA version.

Oh this is good. A comment on the label/bottle itself first - I do like it when brewers can show some humour/individuality through the label. And the only bottlecap like it that I’ve seen. Why aren’t there more like this? Pours an inky black with thin film of creamy head. Aroma of charred toast, espresso, and - I’m never sure what fruit exactly it would be in a beer like this, but it’s...fruity. Taste is big bold, balanced. Mouthfeel is among the best there is. Finish is a touch alcoholic. Yum

mzaar (1640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2013
Flaska. Mörkmörk brun med litet skum. Svagt av kaffe och mörk choklad men framför allt rödvin i doften. Väldigt vinös smak. Knappt att den mörka chokladen och kaffet når fram. Dåligt exemplar?

Anbefaldet på den sorte enke da jeg sagde jeg kunne gode limfjordsportner. Syrlig i lugt, men smagen er det ikke. En stille og rolig stout der smager godt af kaffe, fylde og alt det der skal til en stout, men Limfjorden, nej det når den ikke....

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Dark brown color, small brown head, Toasted, chocolate milky aroma. Medium to full bodied. Roasted, a bit ashy, milky chocolate flavor. Hints of licorice too. Fine impy.
