Bottle. Pours pitch black, with a finger thick brown head. Splendid aroma of more or less everything, and then a bit. Here’s sweet burned caramel malts, oak barrels and bourbon, tobacco, tar, liquorice as well as coffee. Body is thick, full and oily, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with notes of burned malts, molasses, leather, liquorice and tobacco. Nice sweet caramel finish. Awesome beer!

Hoppy, chocolate, vanilla and a nice whiskey finish. Nice milkstout smoothness but with a big enough body to carry the abv.

Pours pitch black with a dark espresso brown creamy head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, creamy dark milky chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, roasted coffee, dark sweet fruits, woody alcoholic notes, really balanced and with smooth edges. Taste has a lot more alcoholic woody whiskey notes along with some liquorice, dark sweet fruits, roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate, creamy oat, a bit cigar maybe and some very weak soy sauce. Very intense milk stout. Well made!

33 cl bottle. Ebony with a grayish tan head. Nose is caramel, molasses, candied orange peel and whiskey. Medium to full body with a lively tingle and a burn. Bring it on! Taste is bitter orange peel, cane sugar, pine and lime juice ending with well integrated whiskey and wood. Quite sweet but not cloying. Oddly, missing coffee and chocolate notes but still a stout. You forget how strong it is.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got my fingers in one at Café Vikingen on Nørrebro.
It’s simply beautiful in a glass; very deep red colour(almost black), beatiful head. - When you put your nose in the glass, you know you’re in for a good one!
The taste is simply perfect! Very nice aromas of madeira rum, raisins, dark malts. But the most important thing is that it EXPLODES in your mouth.... BANG.... And then the sweetnes comes. Topped with creamy, almost buttery, thickness. It’s like drinking butter toffees, And to my taste it’s to much!
I would strongly recommend this beer, but not a full pint! Buy the bottle and share it between 3 - 4 persons - Then it is a very good milk stout!

33cl bottle shared by Joes. Pitch black color, medium sized creamy medium brown colored head that leaves a good lacing and lasts for quite a while. Smell malts, roasty, earth, slightly coffee, a hint of tar. Taste malts, roastyness, earthy, some alcohol, dark chocolate, some sweetness from either the alcohol or the malts, but at the same time some bitterness. Only light to moderately whisky influences though. Warming alcohol in the finish, oily texture, full body, medium to full carbonation.
