Intens warm black coloured beer with a creamy Beige-brown head. The aroma is well in balance. It has very complex roasted accents that reminds me to the coffee aroma’s that came free from the coffee roaster at the Santos Palace. In my childhood, I helped from time to time with roasting coffee beans at the Santos (It was next to our door). Along with the coffee aroma’s, there are loads of other stuff going on. Treackle, Cadico sirup, hints of tar and soft Dutch drop. In the second fase, some fruity touches are comming forward. Hints of Confit the cerrises, dry figgs and burned fruits on top of a fruitpie that has been to long in a to hot oven. The taste is overwhelming and elegant at the same time. It has a smooth and sliky mouthfeel and the balance is almost perfect. It has deep bitterich hints of burned malts, coffee, burned edges of sweet bread and tar. It has a fine slight sweetness and a exciting refresching hoppyness. In the middel pallet you can notice touches of the best of bitter chocolate (Belgian of course) along with touches of vanilla, butter caramels and Ricola = Swiss herb Bonbons. For me, it needs a little more carbonation, but overall, this is a great stout. I hope to retaste this beer in the near future, because i diddend had this one in the best condition. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2006

Black color. As an ice coffee should be. Soft. Malt, coffee, roasted malt, high bitterness… just in one word: good!
Draught at Olbutikken.
Extremely nice stout, not that different from the original version. Black colour w. light-brown head, beatiful foam. Flavor is superb, especially the combination of hops and coffee-flavour is right up my alley. Superb and long-lasting finish. A definite favorite...

Bottle. Strange with a draft version on bottle but never mind. Brown quickly disappearing head. Pitch black body. Roasted malt aroma with coffee notes. Pleasant coffee flavor with a dry bitterness. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2006

Draught. Aromatic, hoppy aroma. Black colour, small tight black head. Very flavourful, very roasted flavour and good bitterness. Nice creamy mouthfeel, from oats I guess. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
Draught. Deep, dark black with a medium-sized mocha head. The aroma is big on coffee and chocolate - super rich and expressive. It sticks around in your nostrils for a while. The flavour is really something and is just bursting...lots and lots of coffee and a solid roasty bitterness in the finish. Excellent balance.
Sampled at the Københavnske Øldage 2006 on May 20, 2006. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2006
Sweet chocolat aroma, roasted and light hops. Black color, brown head, good lace. Sweet, starts immediatly bitter roasted coffee and goes down very bitter. Very much like expresso coffee. Dry and a bit too hard for me. Radek Kliber (7363) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 30, 2006
Dark brown, tan creamy head. Very strong aroma of acidic coffee and bitter hops. Flat body with top coffee roast and alcoholic hoppy finish. Prefect example that bold beers automatically don’t have to be top rated beers. Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Black with dark brown head.
