UPDATED: MAY 1, 2008 Bottle, from Fřtex, Aabenraa. A great dark brown with a medium brownish creamy head. The head stays for a good while and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma has roasted caramel and maltyness. A touch watery mouthfeel. Flavour is great with chocolate, a little smoke and a good dose of sweet roasted malts. 7/4/7/2/14 = 3.4

Pinball (11586) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2008
50cl bottle at home. pours very dark brown, with a very nice looking brown head. Almost like a porter, aroma is brown sugar, syrup and slightly buttery. flavor is faint licorice, burnt stuff (lightly to moderately burnt), faint charchoal, caramel. end result is grilled caramel with some ashes on it. quite a lot to explore in the tasting sensation.

FatPhil (11501) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 11, 2007
500ml bottle. Almost black, large frothy beige head. Slightly sweet and metallic aroma. A bit thin in the mouth - sugars and a bitter burntness that becomes metallic. Can’t put my finger on it, but something was missing. Quite gluggable though.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
Brown/black with a huge head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavour is sweetish and rather thin, but it has weak notes of candy sugar and caramel. It has a light bitterness and in the end a hint of licorice. Uninspiring IMO.
