Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Draught at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Black in colour with a great roast malt aroma and flavour. Uber-smooth and flavoursome. A great stout. illidurit (2458) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 13, 2009
RBSG09 bottle at the grand tasting. Pours almost black with a creamy tan head. Aromas of dark breads and dark chocolate, with a metallic note. Flavor is mainly dark chocolate and cocoa powder, with a light roasted coffee character and toffee. Some mild hop flavors come through with pine, grapefruit, and resin. There’s a hint of acidity too. Nice complex beer. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 15, 2010
0,5 l bottle, bought at PreZBF Festival, Belgium.17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2010
Poured black with a fantastic foamy, beige head with small bubbles. Deep roasted aroma with a ton of dried fruits, fine espresso-like coffee and molasses, caramel, dark chcolates and a lurking hop perfume. Medium bodied stout witha well rounded, smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is full of coffee, roasted grains, dark chocolates and tobacco, some sweet molasses, nice hops in the finish. Roasted coffe-like, dry aftertaste. Very pleasant.
500ml bottle. Pours a very smooth unsticky near black with a wonderful foamy fizzy light tan airy head. Aroma accented by a touch of alcohol, super clean roast, no coffee, oats, smoothly floral, plummy, super clean, and thanks to the Amager guys for giving me some insights as to why = ) ! Flavor follows, light bitterness, no coffee, unique bitterness and faint sweetness that reminds me of the plumminess of some trappist beers, oats, super clean. Medium bodied, smooth with zero stickiness, very well attenuated, beautiful, light sizzling carbonation, very easy drinking. A delight. Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2013
Fast schwarzes Stout mit feiner, bräunlicher Crema, allerdings auch vielen unappetitlichen Schwebeteilchen. Typisches Stout Aroma mit Röstmalz und Kaffeenoten. Außergewöhnlich gut gelungen ist der schöne, bittere Nachzieher des Hopfens, mit 60 IBU auch ordentlich bemessen. Nettes dänisches Stout!

Had this one @ CBF 2010. Black colored brew. Roasted malts in the aroma. Flavor is malty, chocolate, roast, coffee. Ok. portableparty (2384) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a brown black with a large tight soapy tan mocha colored head that settles to a thin soapy film. Aroma has good bitterness of hops and chocolate roasted malt and some faint marsh mellow/vanilla. Taste has more bitter hops with pine/spruce and milk chocolate some yeast and good roasted malt and sugars. Palate is medium somewhat coating and dry. Really tasty!

500ml bottle from IPB.Dfonorow (2274) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Appearance : Pitch black with medium foamy head.
Aroma : Light coffee with roasted malt, some hops too.
Taste : Coffee with roasted malt and hops. Light alcohol on finish with lots of coffee. Resinous and piny hops, rather bitter.
Overall : Interesting beer. Almost drinkable but the alcohol is a bit too apparent to be sessionable. Quite tasty with a great finish, nice coffee and hops. Overall quite good and well balanced but maybe a bit unidimensional. I just saw this is styled as a stout... felt a bit imperial to me. It would kinda of fall between regular stout and imperial stout I think.
Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head. Notes of toasted malt, nuts, molasses, dark chocolate, and licorice. Finish is sweet, dry, and smooth. jjgmd (2250) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a dark black pour with a quick dissipating java head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate , coffee with some bitterness. Taste is rich malt, with deep chocolate and coffee notes and some nice sweetness. Finishes on the same tasting notes, with a moderately long sweet tasty finish. Quaff Score 8 / 10
