Almost black colored with mild red tones. Hoppy, bitter and dry aroma with some sweet caramel tones, maybe some herbs come up too. Flavor is rich with roasted coffee, herbs and endig turns out to be strongly dry, herbal taste giving nice character. Good brew, still expected more out of this. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2003
Dark-brown, almost black a good nut-brown head. Aroma of loads of dark burnt malt, black coffee and some bitterness. Taste is vert malty and hoppy in big black body. Strong notes of dark chocolate, black coffee and burnt malt. Bitter grapefruit bitterness. Long dry finish. bergstaden (3326) - Røros, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2015

Almost black color with a small head. Body is medium to light. Taste is coffee and roasted malts with a bit of dare I say hoppiness? Somehow, it’s just a bit tart. Carbonation is a bit crisp but the flavors don’t meld all that well. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 7, 2007
50cL bottle, courtesy of omhper. Thanks, Per! Pours a very deep dark mahogany color; bright off-white head with creamy, medium-sized bubbles (almost like milk froth) with textured, thin lacing. Plenty of nougat and lightly roasted malts in the aroma; cocoa powder and chocolate; sweet without being sticky. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: plenty of cocoa and milk chocolate and nougat; a warm vanilla note permeates the mid-palate, with a bready note, and slight citrus adding some nice acidity. Lengthy, doughy and vanilla finish; ends quite soft (think: cloud).

Coffee, chocolate and more coffee. Darkest brown, fair toffee head. Roasted malt flavour, good bitterness follows. Complex, feels like a Belgian. Smooth, with hints of fruit and nuts. Fabulous Beer! Turtles (3088) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2015
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark with a medium size beige head, good lacing. Sweet chocolate aroma, dark bread and hay. Light and smooth mouthfeel, gentle carbonated. Sweet taste, milder chocolate taste than the aroma, black coffee, sweet dried figs with some woody and grassy notes. pilsnerrogge (3021) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2002
Very bitter and very roasted, somewhat unbalanced. I prefer Hell!........... Cool_Bond (2846) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2013
I understand where this beer gets its name from. It is absolutely divine. The scent is like floating in small clouds. The taste is like from another planet. The aftertaste is left for a while and tastes wonderful. I can not say any negative things about this beer. But buying this today. You will not regret you!

RateBeer Summer (Toronto) '02: IMHO one of the best beers at RateBeer '02. Molasses aroma with some deep hops, brown color, super long aftertaste. Very bold and complex. An aptly named brew.
