Bottle. Be careful when you open this. My bottle showed a very agressive head as a brown fountain when I opened the bottle. Head: Creamy brown high and lasting. Body: I won’t be incorrect to describe it as pitch black. Roasted barley malt aroma with coffee choccolate and dried fruit notes Well balanced coffee choccolate flavor with a bit of acidic hops bitterness. Alcohol very well hidden. Low carbonation. Long bitter aftertaste. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2008

Bottle @ EBF. Black w/ fizzy beige head. Vinous, coffee bean aroma. Sourish dry coffee and smoke. Flavor is dry espresso, bitter cocoa, some berries and dried fruits. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Slightly alcoholic, but fairly interesting Impy. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2008
EBF2008. It’s pitch black with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice and hints of coffee. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of licorice, caramel, dry citrus and light hints of dark fruits. The body is full and it’s a nice IMPY. cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2008

Had this at European Beer festival 13-09-08 Pours dark brown without much head, maybe the head is a little light tan. Slight burnt nutty woodiness touch sweet with some soft woodiness and big liquorice taste coming through. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle at EBF. Almost black - light brown head. Sweetness, licorice, roasted, light burned, coffee, chocolate, light smokey notes. Ok balance - but not powerfull enough. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2008

Almost black. Zingy hoppy aroma, also fruity. Very light body for a heavy beer. Big, but subtle. Some sherbet in the taste.

Bottle at EBF08. Good malty aroma, grassy hoppiness. Cloudy brown colour. Very sweet flavour, syrupy and sugary. Dried fruit. 7 3 7 3 17
Light chocolate and very light liqourice aroma. Light chocolate body but with a thin and rather boring palate with only a hint of chocolate. Not bad.
