yespr (30913) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2008
22 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a dense chocolate brown head. Aroma is dense chocolate with a strange yet nice fruity note - towards berries. I pick up the same distinct berry note in the flavour too. Nicely roasted malt, bitterhops flavour and smooth yet slight dusty chocolate powderish flavour. Solid bitter and roasted finish. Strange with this distinct berry flavour, yet it is very pleasing.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
A black beer with a fine dark brown head. The aroma is powerful sweet and dominated by chocolate. The flavor has a soft sweet start, then the chocolate hits you and it ends on a bitter chocolate note combined with sweetness. It tastes just as the best bitter chocolates I've had. A great beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2006
(65 cl) Pours completely opaque black with a tiny, beige head. Very roasted malt aroma plus distinct chocolate. Medium-bodied with lightly burned malt accents, some vanilla and HEAPS of chocolate - too much and too artificial to be really pleasant. Slightly burned malt bitterness in the finish. 090706

When cold this beer is noticeably bitter. On warming up it’s much smoother. A mild chocolatey stout with a bitterish finish.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013
2012-10-26, draught at Pibar, Lausanne, 6-4-5-2-11=28
Black color, with creamy brown head. The chocolate aroma is rather metallic and artificial. Slim and smooth mouthfeel; too much ashy roasted malt, fake chocolate; strong ashy bitterness. Unbalanced and quite unpleasant.

2006-10-04, bottle, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Pours black and thick; huge creamy head. The aroma is simple, some roasted malt and cocoa. There is more to talk about the flavor; the mouthfeel is medium thick, with malt and roasted malt, with a distinctive chocolate/cocoa note. Ordinary bitterness. The style is not my favorite, but the beer is well brewed.
