Bottle. Pours a light blocking black with a frothy brown head. Not much to the nose, a bit of burnt popcorn. Bitter and burnt sweet coffee flavor, yummy!! I also pickup some hoppy pine flavors. A very burnt, tobacco dry mouthfeel. Great beer! probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2008
66 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. SE21/08. BB 12 12 2007. masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2008
App.: Black with a good mocha head.
Aroma: Strong dark chocolate and black coffee, some vanilla, a bit green, some milk chocolate and coconut.
Palate: Medium-full body, very soft carbonation, smooth and silky.
Flav.: Plenty of dark chocolate and coffee, a bit of oxidation, some green hops; fairly dry with some bitterness.
Tasty, but I think it’s a bit tired. Need a fresh bottle.
Thanks to Dan who picked this up in Ann Arbor. Bello Vino is a life saver. Poured black with a nice tan head. Aroma was fruity, with lots of smoke. Taste was the same, even more smoke, and some coffee. Chocolate came through as well. Not nearly as much coffee as I had expected, but the smoke would lend itself very well to sausage links and real maple syrup. southamptonsam (116) - New York, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Great nose, beautiful head. Kept getting more and more flavorful. Too bad I only had one. Becoming a real fan of Danish beer. cab (866) - DENMARK - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle. Old rating. Simply divine flavors in this brew... it is loaded with coffee and chocolate, roastiness and dark fruit with a smooth lingering roasty bitter finish.

Bottle thanks to BMan113VR via zathrus13. Black brown pour with a bubbly head. Nose is coffee, earth, and roasted malt. Very dark and earthy but hard to pin down. Top soil? Taste is just a roasted but controlled coffee bomb and chocolate. Great stout. A caged tiger that could easily be turned loose to make a vicious impy stout.

thanks to Julien Allen for this one! - pours a dark black colour under a solid creamy dark beige foam; beautiful lacing; deep aroma of black chocolate, cocoa powder and tobacco; a touch of gentian and fairly roasted; good malt body with a moderate and subtle carbonation; very dry and bitter; long dry aftertaste of espresso, tobacco and milk chocolate - beautiful BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle thanks to zathrus13. Did not have at breakfast...sadly.... Pour inky with a large, dark brown, creamy tight head with a black body with decent lacing and good retention. Aroma is over very fresh coffee, oatmeal cookie, flowers, chocolate, brown sugar and overall smells dark. Taste is fresh coffee roast, chocolatey with no alcohol at all. Deecently smokey. Nothing spectacular, but a good stout. Smooth mouthfeel, light bubbles. RuneStumo (2721) - Haugesund, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2008
03.10.2008, 0,5l Bottle. The colour is deep black with a dark brown lasting thick head. The head tastes like a campfire! The aroma is malt, hops, coffiee and dark bitter chocloate. The body is full and the aftertaste is sour bitter. I don’t think this beer is smooth. The taste is sharpe and powerfull, very nice. As i get through the glas this beer actually gets better. There is also some sweetnes here! NMC01 (70) - DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
Lovely coffee and burned taste with nice hoppy finish. Best Oatmeal Stout that I have tried.
