Tar dark. Brown-tinted head, not very big, and it vanishes after a while. the flavor correspond very well to the commercial decription with soft sweet licorice and shy coffee tones. the aftertaste is smooth and licorissy, no burnt feeling at all. A beginners-stout that anybody can like.

Dark brown with a tanned head that leaves small lacings.
The aroma is of roasted malts, coffee and licorice. Hints of caramel and fudge.
The flavor is sweet and malty with notes of loasted malts, coffee, licorice and fudge. The finish is dry with notes of caramel and sweet licorice.
Medium body with quite a lot of fizzy carbonation.
This is a decent stout. I enjoyed it. Not very complex by any means, but quite tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost black with a large brownish head.
Roasted malt, toffee, some coffee, soy and licorice in the aroma. The same in the flavor plus a slight acidity. Body was about medium also medium carbonation. Short aftertaste. Drinkable but a little thin.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark dark brown with a small beige head. Sort of sourish aroma with notes of milk, chocolate and lots of salty liqourice. Flavor is salty liqourice, light chocolate, lots of metallic notes (blood, metal etc) and some milky sourish and acidic malt off notes. Ends on a sweet and sour note with lingering liqourice. Smooth and medium bodied. Rather off and unbalanced.

Pours a darkbrown color with a beige-white head. Aroma is a bit anonymous, but there’s roasted malt, coffee and light english hops. Flavour is pretty roasted with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, and a quite nice bitterness. Mediumbodied. Quite okay beer!

My guess of what Stensbogaard would deliver judged from the lable design, text and price was that their beers are marketed to some sort of posh middle class who want something stylish to put on their table that signals that they drink good stuff.
And I was right! This is a deacent beer but not made for us geeks...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Very dark brown colour, almost black, with ruby hints through light. Frothy beige head. Roasted, malty nose with chocolate, dark rye bread, coffee, smoky hints of tar and ashes. Roasted, malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, liquorice, dried fruit, prunes, raisins and hints of smoke and tar. Some citrussy hops in a fairly bitter finish. More than medium body, with sweetish hints of alcohol coming through. Complex and tasty stout. Very nice.
