Bottle. Clear amber coloured with a small off white head. Aroma of malts, tobacco, caramel, fruits and yeast. Flavour of malts, fruits and yeast. Hoppy finish. yespr (45443) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a redish glare and a semi creamy off-white head. Light roasted malt aroma with a light coffee-ish note. Flavour is roasted malt and coffee with a light liqourice edge from the hops. Nicely balanced and with just enough sweetness to counter balance the roasted profile. Light coffee-ish finish mixed with liqourice. Dry bitterness in the far finish. Nice one. Ungstrup (37574) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of hops, yeast, caramel, and berries. The color is a very dark red and it has a beutiful beige head. The flavor is of sweet and roasted malts with notes of chocolate and fruit. It ends on a good bitterness both from the hops and the malt. A very nice stong ale. joergen (28108) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2006

Bottled. Dark copperish ruby colour, beige mediumsized head, lacing. Caramellish and chocolateish aroma with malty hints. Flavour is roasted malt, dark chocolate, sugary sweetness. Nice one, though a bit too sweet. Very enjoyable. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown - close to black - with a nice, brownish head. Malty fullness and a dry bitterness - rather marked bitterness actually. Reminds me more of an old fashioned, traditional porter. Odd name - and explanation for it. 140603 Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear garnet with a fluffy, off-white foam head. Toasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate and leaves. Flavor is quite nice, medium sweet, coffee ice cream, light mocha, leafy bitterness, faint toffee and toasted sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with mild bitterness, more coffee ice cream character, faint ripe bananas, light dirt and fallen leaves. A very serviceable English strong ale. Not bad. fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2002
Dark red / amber color, beautiful head and lace. Very nice aroma: malt, caramel, roasted malt, coffee. Rich mouth feeling, strong caramalt; it turns quickly in a very bitter ale, prelude to a long and strong final. Bitterness is the most evident character, followed by caramel and finally by some hop aroma; would be better if more balanced (less bitter, more hop-aromatic). rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Has a clear dark amber color and a matching nice off-white head. Aroma is roasted and clearly cocoa. Flavor is cocoa as well and it turns into quite a bitter finish.
