Real Ale in a Bottle. Very pleasant stout. Roasty, chocolate and coffee flavours are in harmony and don’t insult the palate. This is a real drinking stout - not a beer to fuss about and get pretentious over, but to beer to drink and enjoy. I loved it.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2005 Black body with a fine brown head. Mild roasted aroma with metallic hints and a bit of hop. Notes of sweet chocolate. Also mild in the flavor, roasted malt and coffee tones. Some bitterness in the end and a medium body. A good stout, but very easy and not one that knocks you out!

[bottle] :pours pitch black with a medium tan head which shrinks to a film quite quickly. strong aromas of roasted coffee are found first but there is also a definite smokyness and a little chocolate is there as well. feels well bodied for its alcohol content, dry finish.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2005
Bottle. Black Colour with a small tan head. Light roasted coffee aroma and a super dry, roasted coffee chocolat taste. Medium body and a light sweet dry dry dry finish. Maybe not the best stout but maybe the dryest.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 6, 2005
Black beer with a tiny light brown head. Roast malt aroma with licorice and leather. Deep dry flavour, roast with some tar and mud and maybe a little sour note. A lighter cousin of the Danish "Limfjordsporter" (which is half porter, half strong stout)? That’s the highest acclaim a stout can get from me.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Bottle Conditioned - A black beer with hardly any head. The aroma is very roasty with some coffee and licquorice. The taste is more of the same with some coal and peat notes too. This is a perfect example of a mid alcohol range Stout and one of the best English Bottle Conditioned beers, worthy of its awards.
