UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Bottled. Dark brown with rich head. Strong aroma of cocoa and cinnamon. Sweet, roasty anmd fairly mild with clean mouthfeel and lots and lots of cocoa powder flavour. Herbal spices rather than bitterness in the finish. Another pleasant beer from Nøgne Ø. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005

Dark brown body, beige creamy head. Aroma has some roasted malts with hints of earth and coffee, some chocolate sweetness. Flavor is sweet with the vanilla very evident. This beer became to sweet towards the end. JorisPPattyn (10004) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2005
Nearly black beer; creamy beige head, quite stable. I nearly swallowed my Adam’s apple, when at the end of the bottle, the yeast left the bottle in one loud splash. Nose of black cardemoms, sweet frying fat (zoete lies), leafy, even earthy. Again baadi elaachi , some leafy, and chocolatey notes; typical stout-like malt flavours, but without the associated acidity. The little salty touch is there, however, as well a discreet malty sweetness, getting almondy warming up. Quite carbonated, medium bodied, slightly viscous texture. Another excellent beer from this Norse brewery. The Dolle Brouwers from the High North? Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2004
Dark brown coloured. Vanilla aroma. Big and sweet vanilla flavour. Very smooth. Well balanced and original.

Bottled: Dark brown/red coloured. LIght brown medium sized head. Aroma is dominated by vanilla. Some malt and sweet notes. Flavour is sweet, spiced(vanilla again), light roasted and has some chocolate notes. Some sweet bitterness in the end. Nice one. ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2004
50 cl bottle. Served in snifter. Black color w/ beige head. The aroma is wonderful and dominated by roasted coffee with some sweetness apparent, too. Vanilla isn’t all that obvious. The taste is impressive and rounded w/ lots of coffee and dark malt, some sweetness, and a nicely bitter finish. Very well-balanced. Again, vanilla isn’t all that obvious. Nice, soft mouthfeel. All in all, this is a very harmonic and impressive stout. Another fine beer from Nøgne Ø. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 13, 2004
(on bottle- thx Sigmund) OMG, this is really something else, huh? You start out with a nice black porter with beige head, I´ve seen that before. But just the aroma; huge burnt malts and vanilla, stong. And the flavour? It starts out pretty fantastic, like drinking fudge and coffee. But it sure needs somethink to play with, I should say caramel figs or chocolate cake and..? After half the pour the flavour had turned into a sweet Malibu-ish taste, witch the burnt notes in the finish coulden´t handle. Leaves a thick layer of yeast in the bottle. Different and fun.
