12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a huge and tan head. Chocolate and roasted malty aroma. Light dark fruity note too. Light wooden ad dark fruity flavoured with a light oxidised note. Lingering fruity and roasted malty finish with a lasting mild spice note. Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2006
A pitch black beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of herbs and spruce. The flavor is very sweet, but very soon a very strong spicy note hits you, at first with a herbal note, which in time is over ruled by a note of spruce, which leads to a dry bitter end, out of which grows notes of oranges and cloves. I find the body a bit thin. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Brown colour with a creamy beige head.
Nice sweet aroma with notes of oranges and spices. Complex flavour with notes of oranges, english liquorice and spices, well balanced bitterness. anders37 (27047) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2006

In The Moon (had in 2010). Deep ambery colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is raisins, spices, mild Madeira like notes as well as some slight toffeeish notes. Flavour is rather similar in a very pleasant balance. Has aged very pleasantly. Man In The Moon in Stockholm certainly has some gems in their Cuveecellar.
bottle at home ... dark brown ... thin brown lacing ... soft sweet chocolate raisine nose ... light cola ... little coconut ... little chocolate ... big soft roast malt ... hint of rum ... quite nice. omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Bottled. Dark ruby with beautiful rich, dense beige head. Aroma of licorice and fir. Medium bodied, dryish, lightly roasty. The spices are well balanced, and the flavours subtle and complex. The finish has a fair amount of herbal bitterness. What lacks this otherwise wonderful beer is malt depth. It feels a little sharp around the edges and on the thin side.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, dark mahogany with a reddish glow and a delicate, creamy, brownish, cappuchinoish head. Aroma is very roasted, almost lightly burned and quite spicy. Very soft mouthfeel. The body is rather light with a velvety smoothness, dominated by roasted malt and notes of dark, bitter chocolate. Appears vaguely stoutish, but without the burned, bitter edge. 020106 fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Dark brown color; thin creamy head. Aroma of caramel, spices, molasses, light roasted malt. Too dry taste, with loads of bitter caramel; some phenol, nuts and roasted nuts. Quite weak structure. Strong final. Too raw! harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2006
Bottle from Utobeer. Very dark brown with beige head. Dark roast malt and spicey aroma but with good hop too. Softer than the 2005 that I had a couple of weeks ago. Good dark choc flavours, it also has good depth and length. I love this stuff. It’s like a mulled porter, but the spice is integrated in this.
