22 fl oz. bottle. Pours black with a chocolate brown head. Slight chemical nose and dry malty. Slight creamy mouthfeel. Burbon/alcohol heavy and dry flavour. Very dry finish with a lot of roasted malt. Ungstrup (38139) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a fast disappearing brown head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of bitter chocolate, alcohol, and caramel, as well as lighter notes of smoke and wood. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of hard roasted malt that gives the beer both an acidity and a dryness, the hops also leave a slight touch of grapefruit, before a dry and bitter end sets in, the bitterness both coming from the hops and the hard roasted malt. joergen (28751) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2007

Bottled. Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some wooden notes as well as coffee, vanilla, some toffee and chocolate. Flavour is the same in a rather powerful, but smooth way. Very balanced and nice. Travlr (25528) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours like 10W/40, but much blacker. Brown head that settles slowly. Aroma of dark Lindt’s chocolate, plum, raisin. Taste cocoa, prunes, dates, walnuts, subtle port wine finish. Medium body. Very nice. omhper (25360) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2008
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Perfectly black with dark brown head. Oily and tarry from nose to finish. Sweet and thick, but never cloying or inky. Huge, but never assaulting.
Soft, but powerful. Whipped cream with chocolate and licorice. No finesse or finer details, but a damn solid, edgeless stout. A gentle giant - like having the biggest guy in highschool as your best friend. cgarvieuk (25319) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2008
