yespr (48917) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2007
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy and deep brown with a slight spiced notr. Clear roasted note and a slight chocolate flavour. Dry malty finish. Lacks a lot of body imho.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy chestnut brown with a handsome, beige head that leaves some lacework. There’s a weak aroma of roasted malt. Medium body with lightly roasted malt notes and a dry, slightly bitter finish. A VERY thin finish. Disappointing. 150807

Dark brown color with red hue. Roasted malt and dark caramel, with a hint of coffee, capuccino and hop. Don’t seek anything else here.

Draft... on a trip to The Great American Ballpark. A stand that sells microbrews at a baseball game can’t be a bad thing. This beer is a dark brown in color-almost black. It was a foamy chocolate brown head. The aroma is a toasty coffee with a bit of sweet sugar. This beer is loaded with sweet chocolate and coffee flavors. Delicious.

4.5
SturmWulf (65) - USA - AUG 3, 2007
Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, coffee and banana (!). Poured a nice black, with a good creamy tan head that slowly receded into a creamy cap. Left nice lacing. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate. Medium body with creamy and oily texture. Soft carbonation. Unique finish that is sweet chocolate, then mild coffee in a long mildly bitter finish. A very nice stout. I will definitely buy again. A very good job by New Holland in what I consider to be a very unique stout. Served in a Pint.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle, nice rich aromas, touches of cream and oats, Pours fairly dark wtih a mild lacing of creamy head. Nice dark creamy, light roasted malts, finishes slightly bitter and dry. Not as sweet as I was thinking which was nice to me. Its not a bad brew at all, pretty easy to drink I could drink more than one of these.

2.8
crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, and some coffee. Then an astringent irony taste kills everything in it’s path. Seriously this chalky taste on my tongue sucks and is borderline drain pour.

3.6
DrBayern (1140) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2007
12 oz. bottle pours a dark brown with some ruby illuminating at the edges. Head is rather spare, tan, but durable with some decent lace. Distinct espresso and dark chocolate, some earthiness and nuttiness in the background. Medium body and carbonation, mild astringency. Burnt sugar and treacle are offset by a piney bitterness. Finishes fairly dry for a sweet stout, but not at all unpleasant.
