yespr (32004) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours black with a minimal redish glare and a dense chocolate brown and creamy head. Chocolate aroma, vanilla yet also slight chalky. Chocolate and roasted malt to slight smoked malt flavour. Light acidic touch and medium to fully dry. Growing bitterness lurking out of the massive malt flavours into the finish.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2004
Pitch black fine bubbly brown head. It has a lovely aroma of coffee and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, and hints of raisins. It ends on a great bitterness. The mouthfeel is very creamy smooth. A truely great beer.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark with only a glimpse of light shining through leaving a tint of red. Greasy, brownish head. Rather heavy in alcohol for a stout, but doesn’t appear alcoholic - actually rather a bit watery. Very solid bitterness with a discreet underlying sweetness. 100203

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2005
Bottled. Black colour, small brown head. Strong smoky and roasted malt in aroma along with dark chocolate. Chocolate, roast and some toffeeish notes in flavour, aftertaste is very smoky (smoke from wet burnt wood) and a bit hoppy.

omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2004
Bottled. Black, beige head. Coffee and licorice in the nose. Sweet and creamy, with molasses and chocolate. Salty bitterish finish. Not very complex. On surface it’s a wonderful beer, but if you dig deeper it appears to lack the finer details.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2002
Black color, creamy brown head.
Finally a stout with a complete aroma: hop, roasted malt, liquorice, coffee.
Rich flavor, good body structure, some residual sweetness in the beginning, soon defeated by a bold bitterness and liquorice; good malt, roasted malt, liquorice and hop.
Good final, supported by the roastiness and bitterness.
Pleasant brew, doesn’t score more just because it lacks some originality; compared to one of my favourites dark ales (<a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= London Porter), it has far less hop character.
Recommended for the harmony of the coffee character with the malt.
