3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Bottled (Thanks JensenTaster!). Pitch black, or enormously dark brown, opaque colour, small white head. Aroma is malts, slight roast and smoke. Flavour is strong smoke, roasted malts, coffee and alcohol. Very mouthdrying. Aftertaste is roasted malts, smoke and aftera while a lot of ashes. Quite dry. Wellbalanced, but the ashyness is almost too much...

Bottled (BB 08/2007)
Almost pitch black color, small brown head. Smokey and roasted aroma. hints of smoked ham. Starts with notes of vegetables, then roasted malts and dark coffee. Finish is alcoholic, roasted and followed by long smoked and roasted aftertaste. This one has potential, but it is not my instant favor.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I have looked very much forward to this pitch black beer with the brown, creamy head. The aroma reveals roasted malt, chocolate and a hint of smoke. The mouthfeel is oily. The flavour is smooth with notes of licorice, chocolate, preserved fruits, roasted malt, coffee and the bitterness is nice and harmonic. Yummi - what a nice big beer at a little price. 1983

As black as can be, little dark brown head. Aroma has dominating smoke with nice ham and roastiness, mild convenient alcohol and licorice also there. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is more hopped with biting dryness, smoke and strong roastiness also there. Aftertaste lasts with wooden smoke and dries even more with mild alcohol. Excellent beer.

Bottle @ Olbaren, Copenhagen. Black with a light brown head. Moderately aromatic. Smoky, velvety and meaty malts. Nice malt character. Good body. A good beer, but the microbreweries make better beer.

Bottle. Pours almost pitch black with a big, fluffy brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sourish with notes of cooked vegetables at first, but quickly gives way for roasted, tar, and barbecue notes. Flavour is sweetish, roasted and oily. Finish is bitter and dryish with remote alcohol notes. Slight grassy notes. Smooth and soft palate. 16-03-07.
