Bottle from Euston Tap. Black with a minimal head. Complex nose: marcipane, vanilla,chocolate, hints of coffee. Surprisingly sweet and alcoholic, almost port wine-ish, fruity, with vanilla notes. Full-bodied. High class night cap. jesperhammer (4942) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011

Black with brown head that dies quickly and only leaves a brown rim and a slightly coated glass.
Nose is tar, smoke like peaty, very roaste - burnt chocolate and espresso.
Taste is the same with a sweet dark fruit-like addition. Under the peat I sense some wood, dry wood.
Layers of burnt brown sugar fills the mouth.
Fine carbonation to sort of break the sweetness.
Extremely complex, and very very sweet. Nothing wrong with that:-)
I love this brew. My 99th Mikkeller rating and my rating #1200.
bottled. Pours opaque black with a one fingers brown head. Nose of roasted maltschocolate and brown sugar. Sweet flavor of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and licorice notes. Full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and flat carbonation. Ends up with a little malt bitterness and alcohol notes. Quite good.. OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2012
Small bottle, brought home from Kihoskh, København. Jet black body. Tall, mostely lasting choco head. Nice fruity and hoppy aroma, backed by rich and fresh sourish coffe/chocolate and well roasted dark malts. Roasty, light tarry malt flavor. Yet crisp and kind of fruity with a sour-sweet twist. Thick texture. Full body. Fresh bitter-sweet and roasty ending. Good stuff. Palme (4825) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2012
0.33l bottle @ Henrik. Quite dark this one, on the border of being black and the bubbly little head that came when pouring it quickly fades away in to near nothing. It catches much back in the aroma. I got the bottle that has been standing on the shelf, so finally I got a beer close to the temperature I like. Yeah, the aroma, its dark and sweet. Lots of roasted malts and it almost smells like it has been barreled on something. Chocolate tones and tons of vanilla. Some hints of burned caramel, and all in all it’s quite delicate and nice. It’s surprisingly medium-bodied for a 11.5% ABV imp stout. A thin oily texture - something I would call a bit disappointing actually, and the carbonation level is extremely low. Near the border of being and flat. No, wait, it’s as good as flat. The taste is quite sweet. Surprisingly sweet in the flavor, and it has lots of dark roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, thin licorice and some caramel as well. A bit confusing this one. Perhaps a bit to sweet and "dead" for my liking, and normally I quite like the sweet and calm impy stouts. But tasty? Yeah, definitely tasty. 23.02.2012

Bottle. Flat looking black beer. The aroma is milky and roasted, and the flavour is initially milky with a very malty and roasted bitter finish. Overall complex in parts but not that palatable.
