This was taken from deep in my cellar. Last day of sale: 14-01-04.
and it was fantastic in taste, I havent tasted it "fresh", but this was sweet, liqourous and lovely. If you can: Store the Stout!!!!! jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2005
Bottled. Chocolat and fishy aroma. Black color, bad looking head disappearing completely leaving debris on the glass instead of lace. Very sweet, lots of chocolat, light roasted. Sticky and chalky. TBone (17699) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005

Black, almost opaque color, vanishing chocolate/expresso head. Roasted coffee beans in the nose. Slightly roasted, sweetish and medium-bodied. Not very outstanding stout.
Black body with a light brown head. Malty aroma with chocolate and coffee. Flavor is fairly sweet with chocolate and caramel. Slightly bitter finish. JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2005
Black beer with just a rim of foxy-amber at the edges; greige thick head. Coffee, dark chocolate, Haagse dropjes nose. Again these Dutch sweets (coffee+caramel+...) Haagse Dropjes. Liquorice is evident as well. The chocolate, however - it’s there and it isn’t. Roasted malts and grains. Every sip ends in a short, slightly hoppy, definitely bitter edge. Rather light MF, fills in gradually, grist slickness. Nice not-too sweet stout. Not really my favourite style, but in this it excells. Carlsberg is seriously changing its image in my eyes, with this Semper Ardens series. Thanks to the Danish hobbits.

This is great! Carls Porter is very good indeed, but this is so much better...It’s dark and heavy, less "pushing" than Carls Porter, and dryer in the end. And that chocolate! Dark...belgian chocolate...lasts forever in the aftertaste. And....I don’t give many beers a top score...maybe 1 out of 100... MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2005
Bottle My first in the Semper Ardens line. A slight disappointmend. Quite regular for a cold fermented porter/stout. Alcohol content was quite appearant. In fact, I thought it stronger than it is. Dry and chalky with minimal finnish. (Aged bottle. 2 years?) zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [700 ml. bottle] Dark brown/black color with a very thin and quickly dissipating tan head. Slightly fruity and chocolate aroma with a slight malt mix. Flavor is slightly stale malt with a dark fruit taste mixed in and a slight licorice taste at the end. A bit thin bodied. Thanks Dixen. joergen (28458) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2004
Brown, almost black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, chocolate with roated notes. Flavor of malt, dried fruit chocolate and liquorice. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - SEP 17, 2004
(on bottle)At last, a fine S.A.-product. Violet/black color. Strong chocolate sent, very smooth indeed. Extreemly soft and creamy ale, plesant like he*l.If you wait for it, it has some kaluhatones too. Great carbonation, at last; Carlsberg!
