Perhaps the best damed beer I ever have tasted. A dark brow full-bodied beer with a long after taste of coffee og a bit chololate. All most like Thisted Bryghus’s Limfjordsporter or Samuel Smith Imperial Stout - only much better. Pleace do try it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. An opaque black beer, topped with a low brown head. Looks delicious. Loads of coffee in the aroma along with roasted and burnt malts, dark chocolate , smoke and wood. Full and chocolately lavour with strong notes of pure cocoa, coffee, wood and dried figs. medium bodied which makes it dangerously drinkable. Long finish of wood, smoke and black chocolate. A masterpiece. I never thought I would say this but: Thanks Carlsberg (for bringing it back)!

Bottle. A bit nervous on rating this old time favorite being reintroduced on the market. To start with: The price is right. Buy it at the supermarket ! Brown and lasting head (promising). Pitch black body (interest increasing). Deep and powerful coffee choccolate aroma (getting exited now). Smooth well rounded coffee choccolate dried fruits flavor with a butter sort of ending. Long lasting aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. I think my favorite is back ! Well why don’t I give it a super rating then. Sorry mates no surprises.

Welcome back to this revivaled beer after 4 years out of production. Notes of smoke and smoothness are the main notes of this brew and the rest is the usual notes of stouts. Very fullbodied and full of ingredients. Congratulations to carlsberg. PROBABLY THE BEST STOUT IN THE WORLD

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 Pitch black with a thick creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with some roasty notes and chocolate. Caramel and light smoke. The flavour is sweet malty, light roasty, chocolate, light hoppy with light coffee notes. Nice creamy texture. Sweet roasty finish.
Very black with brown top. Aroma very roasted and coffee but also some metalic thing I dont like. Taste is roasted coffee and the 8,2% alc is very well hidden. There is though some salty taste I dont like.
Overall great value for money.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This reborn baby pours jet black in my glass and forms a dense, tan but rather weak head. The aroma is slightly metallic, put otherwise dominated by roasted grains and hops. Quite clean...
The taste is roasty, coffeish and a bit burned. Theres a slight note of liqourice. The bitterness is nice and full. And both from the hops and the black malts.
The only real flaw in this beer is the carbonation. It’s a bit too aggresive and is in stark contrast to the finer nuances of this incredibly smooth and round beer.
It’s a real treat at the stupidly low price of 10 kr (about 1,6 USD)
