3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small, tan, normal-laced head. Opaque black body. Dense licorice aroma with faint notes of wild berries and coffee. Dense, powerful taste much like the aroma, bitter, burnt aftertaste with lingering coffee taste. Sweetish. More of a stout, IMHO, but still very good. Perhaps a bit lacking in complexity.

Thanks to MrFacto for sharing this beauty that was on my want list. The beer pours to a really dark cola body with a thin white head. The aroma is coffee and iced tea. Very strong and very good. The flavor is a roasty charcoal malt and coffee. Very balanced and very good. Nice roasty full bodied palate.

12oz bottle from madsberg! Pours a dark brown color with a foamy light brown head that receedes to a ring around the glass. Nose is salty, hammy, bacon like. Taste is chocolatey, more meaty smoked bacon and ham, and some notes of coffee. A thick, fluffy mouthfeel, with a velvety coat lasting on the tongue.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2005 So - my first rating. This is one of my favorites. Really dark and rich in taste. A bit smokey and "tary" and maybe a little touch of coffee. Very smooth in the mouth. Exellent.
P.S. I just corrected my rating - I am new so I didnt do it right *S*

Bottle, BB 2.17.06. Thanks to sk8viking for this Danish beauty! Poured a very deep mahogany with ruby/brown highlights. Sizable toffee-colored head sticks around for quite a while... and nice intricate lacing followed the brew down. Aroma of heavy burnt chocolate malts, licorice, tobacco, and soap. Full-bodied and smooth on the palate, with espresso bitterness around the edges and at the finish. Some light astringency. Flavors of roasted and burnt chocolate malt, licorice, a hint of alcohol, and some tobacco on the finish. Roasty bitterness remained for quite a while. Very good brew!

If you are in the mood for this kind of beer it is a go-get. Just so full of taste, aroma and taste. My fav. "go to sleep" combo is an old rasputin (north coast brewing co.), followd by a Limfjords Porter. Great taste-combo, please go there...
