Pours black with thin mild tan head. Nose is of chocolate and sweet malt. Flavor is velvety smooth, oily and rich, coffeish and dark chocolate. Vibrant hop bitterness lingers in the finish. noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Dark red-brown, nearly black. Nice rocky tan head. Aromas of sweet dark fruit, particularly prunes and raisins, chocolate, french-roast coffee beans, burnt straw, peat, toasted malt, alcohol, and bready yeast. Flavor was big, darkly roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, espresso, yeast and a big dose of hop bitterness. Aftertaste of burnt malt and lingering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick, viscuous and chewy. Suprisingly good. OsuStu (269) - - JUN 14, 2014
17 oz can. Pours opaque black with a tan head. Coffee and molasses aroma with some fruit. A bit nutty, coffee, cocoa. Easy drinking for such a high ABV. cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2006
625mL: Pours a nice dark black with a nice tan head. Smell is of roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is supringsing. There was some chocolate and coffee flavors in there, but I also noticed a bit of sweetness in there as well. Taste is very good. Odyn (268) - New York, USA - MAY 29, 2009
This is exactly the kind of beer that I find undrinkable. Way too malty for my taste, though as with most stouts, has a very nice color. Too sweet and to much of a winy taste for me.

bottle pours pitch black with little head. aroma of coffe, subtle chocolate and molasses. taste is malt coffee and a light aftertaste of chocolate. really good especially for the price. Melker (267) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
After two months of not so very interesting asian lager beers daily it’s fucking fantastic to have this poured into a glass after a surfsession in the Indian ocean. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt, licorice. Taste of bitter coffee, dark chocolate. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, long aftertaste. mxtur (266) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2011
These Danish malts are different. I think this is the perfect stout for someone who has never had a stout before to start with. Not as thick as the color dictates. Dense thick beige head that dissipates quickly. It has a abrupt finish, but it does linger in the chest. Wood and nuts with a creamy head. Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2008

Bottle. Pours a black colour with a brownish head. I like to nose - roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, some smoke, plums or blackcurrants in alcohol - port maybe (withot any disturbing aromas of the alcohol) and some earthy dirt. Flavour is roasted with a subtle sweetness. Roasted malts, roasted coffee, smoke and dark bitter chocolate. You don’t feel the high alcohol content at all. The finish is a bit salty with some bitterness. Nice!
