[ Courtesy of Urbain and Carlo ]. Clear dark black color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, chocolate, coffee, oak, cask wood, vanilla. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration. The alcohol is very well hidden. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft and very smooth. ;o)) Thanks again Urbain and Carlo, [20081025]

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2010
Draft. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of alcohol and chocolate combined with medium notes of roasted malt. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of roasted malt and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted and alcoholic finish. The body is oily thick.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
On tap. Black and completely opaque with a small light brown head. The nose is rich in intense dried dark fruits, vanilla and alcohol. Very full-bodied, low carbonation (but it’s there!), somewhat sticky hard roasted malts and again vanilla and dried fruit. Plenty of chocolate notes with a salty mineral edge. Has a light malt bitterness with a warming but not overly alcoholic finish. Interesting indeed. 141210

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2011
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Near black, no head. Syrupy alcoholaroma. Super-mega sweet with black hole style body. Compact with syrupy sugar, resin and burning saccharine compressed to a singularity. Inky and very aggressive. Yikes, this is certainly not for me.

madmitch76 (13417) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2010
24th September 2010. Borefts Beer Festival.
Opaque black beer. Surprisingly big brown head. Rich dark chocolate and minerally coffee. Dark malt - lots of other subtle things. But the most remarkable thing here is it’s drinkability. It looks and drinks like a beer and nothing like a spirit (a la Schorschbock, Bismarck etc). There is hardly any warmth from the alcohol which is astonishingly well hidden. An amazing piece of brewing craft!
