Draught Black beer, small rim. Pure coffee nose, Nespresso... Black coffee & chocolate in the taste, with just a hint of some spices, but little else. Finish is sweet however. Very slick, nearly oil. Crude one, that is. Not a small stout, just a tad sweet, maybe quite some unrefermented sugars? Defreni (3255) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2008
Fad. EBF 2008 En lille smule karbonering giver et lille brundt skum som igen får den til at ligne en cola der har stået et stykke tid. Flot balance i øllen der skjuler alkoolen særdeles godt, men mundfylden er en smule tynd og det trækker ned. ekstedt (6881) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2008

(Draught) Very dark brown with no head. Pretty malty but mild aroma with vanilla hints and licorice. Smoky, tarry, silky-smooth flavor with loads of malt, some licorice, moderate hop bitterness, not too much color malt. Quite full body, not much carbonation. Another hit from this brewery - even as the aroma lagged a bit behind flavor. bierkoning (13392) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2008
Tap @ De Molen. Dark chocolate and licorice in the overwhelming aroma. The dark chocolate returns in the much more Islay malt whisky like flavor. Smoke, lapsang souchong tea, tar, peat, hints of licorice. Well made, very tasty beer that hides the alcohol well and that should gain more complexity with further maturation. Already more than excellent.
