dense, rocky head. Sweet, fruity nose. Complex, malty - vanilla and coffee; creamy palate; light notes of raisins and plums. Exquisite.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Bottled. Almost black, with a tan head. Weak aroma with coffee, burnt malt, hints of licorice and chocolate. A mellow flavor with chocolate, coffee and roasted notes. Full-bodied, with a dryish, bitter finish. This must definately be one of the best Asian beers available. Rating: 8-5-8-4-15-4. 060801

Bottle. A beautiful looking beer, more or less black in color and with a finger-thick, dense, light tan head. Roasted, licorice aroma with a touch of alcohol. Quite fruity too. The flavor too is really nice, sweet, with roasted malts, some dried fruits, a touch of warming alcohol and a hint of licorice. Full-bodied and smooth, really tasteful. A beer I love to repeat. 110827

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Can @ AirBNB Palace. Black pour with a big tan head. Nice roasty, graham cracker, and dark chocolate. A touch of vanilla, light ash, and coffee. Not bad. Flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. Some graham cracker sweetness, ash, and a touch of vanilla.

62,5 cl. bottle: Black with a creamy brown head & lacings. Aroma is roasted malts & dark fruits (raisin). Chocolate, coffee & caramel roast. Medium, soft & smooth palate. Great!

3.8
FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 330ml bottle (Systembolaget, Sweden) (6:5:8:4:15=3.8)
Jet black, beige head. Soft sweet creamy gentle coffee aroma. Pleasant carbonation, very soft creamy coffee palate. A touch sweet, but a really good rich burntness. Both quite heavy, but also refreshing - doesn’t feel like an 8% beer at all. Some bite to the hops to accompany the burntness. Finish is cocoa-like, and with some hoppy tingle. Very tasty stout.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (4:4:6:4:12=3.0)
Sour aroma. Tasted good though. Marduk should rerate!

3.6
MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle. Black and thick, big light brown head (hm, that came out a bit dodgy). Full, sweet flavour, some coffee. Salty liquorice aftertaste. Thick syrupy mouthfeel.

3.5
Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2013
Sampled from bottle thanks to Kermis @ Deanso. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized beige head that leaves nice lacing. Smell malts, roastyness, earthy. Taste malts, earthy, roasted malts, dark malts, slightly fruits. Medium body and carbonation.
