UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 Pitch black in the glass with a nice big head. Nice mixture of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of berry sourness. Good one for sure.

Rating 10,000. Tap @ Bryggens Ølbar, Cph. Pours completely black with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has roasted malts, chocolate, blackberry wine gums, mild vinious. Low carbonation, fine dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, no sign of the 13%, roasted, cocoa, fruity, fresh. Very elegant and dangerously easy to drink.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle, 06/18/2013. Pours thick black with a massive, rocky mocha tan head, sticky lacing left behind as it slowly dies down. Aroma is rich dark chocolate and coffee, thick roast malts, blackberries coming through more and more as the beer warms, moderately sweet and jammy, but not considerably sweeter than Black Albert, smooth chocolaty wood finish. Taste is sweet dark chocolate and coffee, light berry and port notes offset by thick cacao, roast bitterness, licorice. Full, thick body, typical for the series, everything well balanced, the berries are not too sweet here. Wonderful.

Draught at Bryggens Ølbar. Pitch black coloured with a small beige head. Roasted aroma of licorice with notes of roasted bread and dark chocolate. Roasted flavour of licorice and dried fruits with notes of blackberries (without any tartness from the berries). Sweet and roasted finish.

Defreni (2658) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2013
Fad: Kulsort let øl med et flot mokkabrunt skumhoved. Elegant, dejlig duft af impy stout med en smule brændt malt men også med en meget frugtagtig profil der viser hen til solbærrene. Disse kan tydeligt smages i selve øllen hvor portvinsfaddene også er tydelige. I det hele taget en overraskende let og drikbar stout for så mange procenter men med en fantastisk smag og balance.
