Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Appearance - as described! Lots of dark fruit, especially blackcurrant, on the nose. Quite perfumy even. When you sip, there’s almost a violet taste. The palate is slightly slick and thin but overall this is very nice indeed. Dedollewaitor (16159) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008

Black colour, small brown foamy head. Aroma is coffee, some mild roast, alcohol and wood in a nice balance. Flavour is fruits, dark dry fruits, dark malts and some tones of chocolate and vanilla. Aftertaste has vanilla, dark fruits and mild toasted notes.
Draught at EBF. Black - brown head. High sweetness, white sugar, wood, barrel, coffee, vanilla, roasted, burned, nice hoppy, chocolate, licorice... and a lot more - bit like Black but with less hops. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008

Draught at EBF, Copenhagen.
Complex imperial stout, sweet, a bit of sourness, some fruit. A bit too sweet for me, really. They can’t turn everything into gold, can they? JorisPPattyn (10003) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2008
Huge, dark brown head, fluffy, over jet-black beer. Coffee, black malts, extremely roasted nose, and a lot of USA-like hops. Black coffee, burning chocolate melt, black chocolate dessert, Zachertorte, hopresins and piney notes in the finish. Very viscous, very full-bodied. Very good, and well-hopped black Stout - excellent as it is, but compared to the Dark Horizon of Nogne... asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
[on tap at EBF 2008]
Bubblegum dark malt aroma with a hint of vanilla and not much else. Opaque, viscous black with a thin brown cover and thick ring. Very salty from excessive hopping rate along with a strong dark malt bitterness. Coffee and mocha notes. Tangy and salty feel from tons of hops--really overboard. Medium carbonation, sweet finish with a touch of lasting dark malt bitterness. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
EBF08. Good hoppy aroma. Black colour, no head. Sweet alcoholic flavour, roasted, liquorice. Good. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Black color with a brown head. Very nice roasted aroma. Very nice roasted body with strong hints of chocolate and coffee. Very bitter palate with a complex hop pattern. Extremely nice.
