Bottled. Dark ebony coloured beer with a thick lasting dark tan head. Aroma of vanilla, elderberry, light roasted barley and floral sweetness. Flavour is malty, coffee, cola, floraly, fruity berry aroma. finish is also flowery and a bit roasty. Quite good. Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Tastes like a sweet stout with a handful of berries thrown in. Little to no carbonation/head, and the berry flavor is easily perceptible. Not bad. veronika (410) - SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
Black, small head. Aroma from tar, coffee and some violet. Flavor from slaty licorice and coffee. Mild finish. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2004
Bottled. A black beer with practically no head. There is a smokiness to the smell after an initial fruitiness. The roasted oats comes through throughout. There is very little fruit in the flavour, which is more typical of a sweet stout. A good beer but a little bit too much going on in an unbalanced manner.

Stout’ish. The berries come through very clearly. Too clearly to my taste. Too sweet and too thin

Black with brown head. Roasted malts, liqourice, fruity notes. Pleasent, but nothing special IMO. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 24, 2004
(on bottle) Smells like vodka witn black currant, very sweet and alcoholic. Was looking forward to the taninsweet and stron elderberry flavours, but instead I get a roasted, watery feel. Why? I have had porters with less roastyness, but this was suppose to be elderberry-ish. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 17, 2004
Dark as night, with thin or no head. Chokecherry, earth, and strange berry notes. Slight prickle in the mouth with roasted flavors. Berry, chocolate, witha flat bitter finish. Not sure what to think, not a big fan of the beer though it has an inticing quality to it. rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2004
Black with a small head. Aroma from tar and some licorice. Flavor brings tar as well, with cocoa and some vinous touches in the finish.Some elder was found as well. larsniclas (7153) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2004
Black with aroma from licorice and tar.
A bit too sweet with tar-flavour.
