Pours a perfect pitch black. Dark brown head sits atop. The aroma is a nice blend of oats, dark chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is intense but the finish is smooth. Overall a wonderful beer.

Poured from a bottle black with a solid light brown head, which quickly dissipated but left fine lacing. The nose is chocolate, caramel, coffee, and a little vanilla. The palate is very smooth, beginning with light tinkling from the carbonation, rolling roundly over the tongue and finishing with a lasting dry coffee-bitterness. The chocolate becomes more prevalent as the beer warms. This is one of the best beers for a cold winter day, and is by far one of my favorite beers for sipping and savoring the flavor.

Hansen (8545) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2010
Dark, almost black. Has a light brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma is dark, oak, coffee, chocolate, roasted. Perhaps a faint note of smoke. Flavor is rather bitter for a stout. Dry. Faint medicine.

jesperhammer (4616) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2010
30-JAN-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pours jet black with high brown head. Looks delicious...:) Heavy coffee and chocolate aroma. Very bitter taste with lots of hops, and of course also the coffee, and chocolate notes. The hops adds to toe long aftertaste, and this is just a very very good stout.

( 12oz. Bottle thanks to BA Desaparecido) pours near black, dark brown lasting creamy head and excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruits, coffee, dark chocolate and cream. Taste of milk chocolate, cream, lots of coffee, oats, and quite rich and complex. Great creamy thick finish. Excellent beer.

phaleslu (9923) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest. This was my winner of all the samples I tried at the event. Ive had this in the fridge for a while and didnt think Id actually try it outside first, but finally did. Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black but cola brown on the edges. Thin tan head. Big coffee aroma, with roasted malts, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and wood. Big coffee flavor, too, with dark chocolate, oats, molasses, and brown sugar. Full-bodied, with minimal carbonation and a roasty finish. Great beer that lives up to its name and reputation.
