Bottle. Pours pitch black with a nice dense light brown head. Aromas are very roasted with notes of chocolate and bitter coffee. The flavour is coffee, chocolate, licorice and a burnt bitter finish. The palate is light an a bit thin. HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle. had it for nightcap not breakfast. In any case it pours with a pitch black color and a foamy brown head. Lost of carbonation in this one. Aromas are surprisingly subdued, there is not much coffee but rather more chocolate and cocoa powder. Flavors are more coffee and chocolate dominated, with a very bitter finish. Body could be a bit more robust, it seems a tad too thin. rwaters (27) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Pours thick black with a tan head. Fragrant hop aroma with coffee/oat flavor. A bit thinner and more bitter than I was expecting. gator2683 (199) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 22, 2009

The aroma is like chocolate milk with coffee, and toasted malt. The appearance is black with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is a tad bit thinner than I was expecting. Overall this is good but not as good tasting as it is smelling. BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Brewed in Denmark....... Pours a wonderful black color with a monster foamy khaki head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark malts and oats. Taste of dark coffee, malts, chocolate and mild hops. The mouthfeel is medium in body and finishes with some dry bitterness. This would be a very interesting brew to drink for breakfast......lol. Overall, pretty yummy stuff !!!

500ml Bottle. Pours midnight black with a big chocolate head. Great nose of toasted malt, chocolate, toffee and coffee. Flavor had a nice hop bite to perfectly compliment the large amount of malts in this brew, great stuff. cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2009

I tried this beer on February 25, 2009 at "Smokeless Joes" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was dark brown, almost black. with a thick fluffy light brown head. The aroma was roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with mild carbonation. The flavour was bitter with strong hints of coffee, chocolate, and plums. A great beer
Pours jet black with limited tan head. Sweeter than brunch one-for-one in a bad way. Lots of alcohol present on the nose. Some roasty coffee notes. Fairly highly carbonated for an RIS. Too carbonated and too much roast for my taste to be able to enjoy a lot.
