Bottle. Almost black with small brown head. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, bitter, chocolate and a little liquorice. yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle, thx to the brewer. It pours a delicious jet black body, topped by a small dark brown head. The aroma is of the kind I am reluctand to stop sniffing. Tar, liquor, chocolate, red meat notes, smoke, coffee, vanilla and some vague sourness. The flavor is a bit less intense, with chocolate, coffee, cocoa, alcohol and a light acidity. Still very complex and really good. Warming, full-bodied, oily, smooth and dry. Finishes with a coffee-like bitterness. Maybe a bit edgy and still in need of some cellaring, but a wonderful beer. Will surely have more of this! (081229) jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2010
Dark scottish style ale. Hoppy to the point of sourness. Very dark pour. Interesting. Rated 4/13/10 brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
A: The beer pours black in color with a sizable tan head.
S: Rich notes of chocolate and roast with what seems to be oak. There’s a fair amount of smoke to it as well as a light spice, seems like pepper. Molasses and just a hint of vanilla add some sweetness.
T: The flavor is much heavier on the smoke. A lot of roasted malt and dark chocolate with some hints of dark fruit and licorice. Espresso/coffee notes with a bit of earthiness to it.
M: Rather full bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: A bit smokey for me on the palate, but quite good otherwise. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2011

Draught, KØ11. Good roasted aroma, also seems to have a little sweetness. Black colour, small stable dark brown head. The flavour is a bit sweet, but balanced by some alcohol and a bit of hops. Hop bite in the finish. Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2011
Never seen anything this black! Totally opaque pitch black. Even the small head is dark brown. Really weird smell! Taste much softer than I expected based on appearance and smell. Interesting beer. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark black with a small dark tan head. Very nice aroma of smooth toasted malt and some dark fruit. Full bodied with frothy carbonation. Lots of flavor. Fruit and dark malt, but coffee seems to come forth in the end. Maybe a touch of prune. Finiishes heavy and malty. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2010
