500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Top fermented, ABV is 7.5%. Black colour, big and lasting brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and mild coffee. Roasty flavour, notes of burnt toast and strong coffee, hints of dark bitter chocolate and liquorice, but the beer is not very sweet. Fairly bitter finish and aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 Bottle from Kvickly, Nørrebros Runddel.
This beer is black as the darkest night, with a milk chocolate coloured head of impressing density and a good timespan. Unfortunately no lacings.
Medium powerful aroma of coffee, liquorice and chocolate, of which the coffee might be most obvious. Flavor is still marked by coffee and liquorice, but besides from that there appears to be a caramellish malt taste towards the finish, which is marked by alcohol and a solid bitter finish. Palate is creamy and the beer is rather thick.

When pouring this "tar" into the glass, my expectations were quite high. NIce beige head, lasting not too long , though. Nose contains tar, dark coffee and some malt. The taste is very soft, open, and have a hint of roasted malt, which I personally appreciate. This beer stays for minutes in your mouth. What a great beer this is.
