Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Black color. Aroma of roasted malt, Port wine, American hops. Strong mouthfeel, very good chocolate flavor, with just some roasted malt, very warming. Powerful, rich, a bit coffeish and creamy at the end. Strong bitterness. Very good.
So rich! with hints of smoke. Thick, coffee-influenced drinking. It ends too bitter, to my taste, but a very good beer nonetheless. Bottle shared at RBSG 2009 grand tasting. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2009

Bottle at the RBSG09 grand tasting thanks to yespr. Black with a tan head. Vanilla and chocolate aroma. Dark chocolate flavor with nice port and wood nuances, finishing a little bit hoppy. Damn, the port barrel just perfectly compliments this. A standout in a tasting of several (at least my me) amazing stouts. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2009

øbenhavnske Øldage 2009. As black as it gets with a thick, dark choco head on top. Strong tar-ish malt aroma. Coffe, bitter chocolate and licorice, alcohol and wood. A fat malt body is coating the palate. Quite sweet with coffee, chocolate and heavy roastedness. Alcohol is noticable, notes of dark dried fruits and vanilla. Stong, kind of edgy bitterness in the backbone. Chewy mouthfeel. Alcohol heath, hard roasted malts and sharp bitterness in the finish.
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It pours a black body with a dark brown tint and a minimal sized tan head. Chocolate, coffee, oak, notes of burnt malt, vanilla and alcohol in the aroma. Sweet flavor with alcohol, lots of coffee and chocolate, vanilla, burnt malts and bitterness. Warming, full-bodied and sweet. The initial flavor lasts a long while, and the alcohol gets more pronounced towards the very end. The unbarreled edition isn’t as warming as this one, think I prefer that one. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 090516
Bottle. It’s black in the glass, topped by a finger-thick, tan head. The aroma is slighlty vinous, with coffee, beef-stock and alcohol. It’s quite sweet on the palate, roasted and coffee-ish, with alcohol and some chocolate. Full-bodied and warming, but not pushing. A really lovely beer, one that I would love to re-visit. 110513
