Bottle. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is cocoa, coffee, roast, dusty caramel and light chocolate. The flavour is mainly roasty with notes of cocoa, chocolate, coffee, dusty hops, bitter espresso and light bourbon. Creamy texture. Long roasty cocoa finish with some warming alcohol.

Black with a medium deep beige head. Sweet aroma with plenty of bitter espresso, dark chocolate and burned malt. Flavour had burned malt, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and bourbon. Plenty of hops gave it a prenounced bitterness. Pinball (12331) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2010

Bottle @ Papsø. Tasted blind. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head and lacings. Nose is bitter roasted and ashy. Roasted and bitter flavor with cold coffee, vanilla and chocolate and a great amount of hops beneath. Smooth, stikcy and oily. Lasting end.

Pours a deep, rich black with a thick, frothy head of dark beige. Aroma is straight-up coffee, with fresh coffee beans and fresh coffee grounds intermingling in the glass. Reminds me of Sunday mornings at Grandma and Papa’s house. Just a touch of hops pokes through after a good swirling in the glass. Flavor is a rush of hoppy coffee and a touch of sweetened peat. Small chunks of oak and vanilla coffee linger in the finish. Leaves a nice, thick film of coffee and hops on the tongue. Fantastic beer. One of the best beers to finally arrive in Houston in a long time.
Absolutely incredible. Has a great nose with expresso, coffee bean, and chocolate flavors. The color is pitch black, thick and dense. Very smooth and enjoyable. DedicatedToFun (4003) - Santa Monica, California, USA - MAR 27, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Bottle, pours dark, brown head, rich, espresso is taking over, intense imperial stout, dessert beer Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of ¾/mj - whatever. Pours a very dark brown - close to black - with a reddish hue and a lovely light brown head with a not too good retention. Hard roasted malt and coffee in the nose - quite intense. Solid body, very dry hard roasted malt, mouthdryingly dry. Coffee and ashes. Very malt bitter finish. 270310 monkeychugg55 (1109) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2010 Bomber from The Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton, MO. Pours a thick black with a small brown to tan head than lasts as it warms. Leaves sticky cheetah print on the sides of my N.B. globe glass. The aroma is loaded with espresso and also has a woody element, with some chocolate, faint floral hops, and a lot of roastiness. The flavor is awesome. Lots of coffee all the way through, with coco, vanilla, roasty as hell malt, and oaky wood. This starts out somewhat sweet, but ends really bitter with coffee and dry wood on the finish. Thick and sticky in the mouth, with soft carbonation. The alcohol is only slightly detectable if at all. I wish it was available near my neck of the woods. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Pours deep black with dark brown head, aroma is big hops and espresso. Taste up front is huge hops blending really nicely with big espresso notes leading into a mocha, caramel, and toffee finish that bitter fairly well. Excellent brew!
