Bottle, bought at Cockneys, Aarhus. Pours a beautiful, deep, chestnut brown with a fine, frothy, off-white head. Sweetish aroma with lots of caramel, some roasted malts and a fruity edge with some red berries. Lowish carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit weak, compared to the aroma. Some light roated malts and chocolate with a subdued hoppy dryness. Quite drinkable. hawthorne00 (4028) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Deep brown with a coat of beige head that disappears. Aroma of singed toffee, nuts, stewed fruits, a meadow. Taste has stewed fruit, toffee, chocolate, some floral/ herbal note. Rather flat and thin - bottle says brewery conditioned, not bottle conditioned - and not quite mouthfilling. Nice spiced chocolate finish. Suspect that bottling has ruined this. yespr (46523) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2011

Bottle. Dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma was fruity and malty. Taste was quite enjoyable; some sweetness, liquorice and fruit, as well as a fair dash of chocolate. Could have had more bitterness. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2007

Bottle as part of Hogs Back christmas pack
Aroma - Powerful, sour malty chocolate with alcohol aftertone. If this tastes as good as it smells, I’m in for a treat.
Appearance - small but creamy and persistent head over a deep, deep amber brown. Pleasant.
Taste - ...sadly doesn’t carry through from the aroma, quite. Too sour for my tastes, sour and bitter dominating the pleasant chocolate and malt undertones. Pleasant enough, but I wouldn’t seek it out.
Palate - Thin and watery, a disappointment.
