Deep, dark mahogany, bubbly brown head, early lace. Aroma of booze and burnt sugars. Flavours of molasses, brown sugar, hints of raisins and wood. Sweet, but with a surprisingly bitter end. Delicious. beernbourbon (1592) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle. Pour is deep rich brown with a medium light brown head. Very powerful look to this beer. Aroma is loaded with roasted caramel malt. Tons of it. Also light fruity notes, faint coffee, light smoke, and faint licorice. Flavor is lots of roasted malt, but not as much as expected. Also a light dryness with notes of brown sugar and coffee in the finish. Less sweet and more well rounded than expected. Also a faint hop note. Really hides 11% well. Only a faint alcohol note.

Pours a dark thick gem, with white head that leads to alce. From private buying club. Big bold roasty aromas. Bold taste of roast, coffee and chocolate. Not too thick, still quite drinkable. Alcohol well hidden but it warms the body and then fogs the brain. Amazing meal in itself. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a brune body with an off white head and poor head retention. Etoh creeps out first with a dark fruit tone, caramel, fig, sherry notes. Licorice and rye with a mild caramel tone. Soy and malt sweetness. Pretty boozy finish. Eh.

200ml from tap at Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen. Deep and shiny mahogany coloured body. Bare naked surface. Spiced aroma with malts and a touch of almond. Dusty hops and spiced chocolate malts in flavour. Dry and lingering in the throat. A varied and flavoursome brew, 05.11.2010. Beer5000 (6489) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2010
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Clear, reddish brown body with a medium size brown head. Aroma of sweet malt, dry fruit and coffee. Flavor is sweet malt,chokolate, dry fruit, nuts and hops. Fine balanced body, bitter finish and well-hidden alcohol. A solid brew. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured deep brown with a tall, creamy, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up warm darker fruits, molasses, and some coffee, with a sweet overall impression.. some hints of warmth around, but the sugars led.. well-balanced. The flavor found more of the molasses and sticky caramel at the core.. prickly, peppery alcohol and malty sourness (molasses and some coffee) emanated outward.. a little too sour and sharp.. warmed up the belly and left a molasses impression on the finish. Heavier-bodied and sweet on the palate.. nice creamy feel on the front, but the sourness after that didn’t work so well.. chewy. This was a solid brew that may benefit from age. saxo (18302) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle from Voldby. Nice head with good duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are rich malt, dried fruits, caramel and hops. marcus (10227) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours black with a thick tan head and a strong treacle and coffee aroma. There is a thick sweet dark malt flavor with a very dry bitter finish. A marvelous brew.
