Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks DSG for sharing. Hazy brown-black with a small creamy head. In the nose: roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and wood. Taste - sweet, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and dried fruits, great balance, alcohol is well hidden. Rather full-bodied. Smooth and creamy. Excellent.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks omhper for this bottle! Black with a brown head. Roasty aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, wood, a bit of vanilla and an oxidized note that integrates well. Rather sweet roasty flavor with lots of coffee, some dark chocolate, wood, a bit of vanilla, some dark fruits and a light bitterish hint, slightly burnt. Full-bodied. Great.

Copenhagen. Indeed ’black as coal’. Dark chocolate coloured foamy head. Soft palate. Rich beer! Minerally chocolate and coffee with a definite alcohol spice. Woody sweetness and a very warming finish.
