yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 From tap at the brewpub. Pours deep dark brown to black with a huge, creamy and dense dark chocolate brown head. Smooth roasted malt aroma, chocolate and bit of marmelade hoppy accents. Minor alcohol presence in the nose too, becomes more apparent as the beer heats up. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, thick and fullbodied. Light acidic roasted malt flavour initially. Solid roasted malt and chocolate following with a nice hoppy fruity accent and solid bitterness into the finish. Has a mild sweetness to just balance the bitterness and solid rosted malt flavours. Smooth finish with a slowly building hardroasted and lasting acidity. In addition there is a slowly building dextrose feeling yet with the bitterness as a solid counterbalance. Lasting malty and chocolate finish that just keeps lingering for eternity. Very far finish has a light fruity hops accent which kept growing in the minutes following finishing the beer. Full of layers and complexity yet not impossible to approach.

Draft from the pub. Very dark brown with a beautiful dark brown foamy head. The first thing that comes to mind in the aroma is roasted malts, and lots of it, giving it complex notes of coffee and raw chocolate. Along with the roasted notes comes some sweeter tones of honey and vanilla, though very subdued compared to the roasted part. The texture is very very sticky (especially if you get some on your hands) but apart from the stickyness it feels smooth and not too heavy (might be bacause of the cold temperature it was served at). Flavor hold lots of overwhelming bitter roasted notes along with sweet candy and brown suger with an extemly long lingering roasted bitter aftertaste. The alchohol is really well implemented (hidden) and yet theres no doubt its a high abv beer. thewolf (12590) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2009
Tap @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2011
Pours completely black. A great set of creamy, beige head leaves great lacings. Aroma has leather, chocolate, roasted malts, some black currants, vinious and just a hint of coffee. Super creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Flavour is really fantastic. Vinious, dry, chocolate, grainy cocoa, ginger, Kenya coffee, hops and a long, lingering bitter roasted finish. Truly magnificent.

Pours a pitch black colour with a beautiful dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with dark coffee and some fruits as well. Flavour of smooth roasted malts, dark coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, caramel and mild vanilla notes. Full bodied with an excellent smooth mouthfeel. Awesome, just awesome. Definitely a top-10 brew for me.

Completely opaque black-brown with a very nice head and lacings.
Very heavy aroma of smoke, chocolate and liquorice. Flavor is heavy with tar, liquorice, smoke and chocolate. Close to the ultimative stout taste. Thick, soft, round.
27-MAY-2011, draft @Copenhagen BeerFestival. Rating #1000.
Black with brown head.
Very roasted and very sweet. Nose perhaps a tad subdued, but taste is full throttle.
But what is really most amazing is the smoothness and fullness. So creamy and with quite low carbonation.
Roasted coffee, chocolate, some hoppy bitterness. But mostly it all just coexists and gives one of the best brews I have had.
Worth a #1000 rating:) joergen (28102) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2009

Roasted flavour of chocolate and coffee with notes of dried fruits, hops and alcohol.
Dry roasted and hoppy finish with some wamth from the alcohol. Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2009
Entered to celebrate my rating number 12,100. Draft. A pitch black beer with a slight brown shine along the bottom of the glass under a thin lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, wood, sherry, roasted malt, and soy sauce, as well as lighter notes of dark bitter chocolate. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, prunes, over ripe fruits, and wood, as well as medium notes of soy sauce, brown sugar, and alcohol, that tickles the tongue and palate, and burns lightly in the top of the throat. The finish is very bitter, both from the hops and the roasted malt. Nice one. Skinnyviking (9569) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009

It’s pitch black with a dark brown, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and dark fruits. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, plums, preserved fruits, citrus and a nice, roasted bitter finish – an incredibly nice beer.
