UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 2009-10-14, draught at the brewpub, Scottsdale, AZ, 5-3-6-3-11=28rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2011
Black color. Light roasted malt aroma. The body is not so strong, it has a strong dark chocolate and roasted malt flavor, with light acidity from the roasted malt. Strong ending bitterness. Too much roasted for me.
2009-06-12, bottle, blind tasting at Papsø’s, 7-3-6-3-13=32
Black color; medium creamy head. Nice aroma, well combining coffee beans, chocolate, vanilla, cream. Medium-strong mouthfeel, roasted malt flavor, some chocolate, getting drier at the end, with a quite strong bitterness. The aroma is interesting, then the flavor gets more and more monothematic.
Bottle. Black beer with a big beige head. Chocolate aroma, milky, roasted and with licorice notes. Sourish flavor, rubber notes, chocolaye, vinous and with roasted notes. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011

Bottle from H.J. Hansen. Huge creamy head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich coffee, chocolate, roast malt and hops, nuts and hops. Very smooth. Excellent stout. Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
Very dark brown. Chocolatey, coffeeish nose. Thick, rich flavour with a fudgey accent. Decent stout, not terribly foreign, maybe just American.

Bottle, 22oz. It’s a reddish black beer topped by a really pretty dark beige head. The flavor has a little gingerbread initially, with some roasted malts and cough medicine. Quite burn. The flavor is roasted and coffeeish, some chocolate smoothens it out, and a good bitterness chimes in towards the finish, leaving a nice balance to the beer. Dry and full-bodied mouthfeel. Definately a beer to enjoy again. 091230 brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 15, 2011
A: The beer pours just about black with a finger of tan colored head.
S: Something is obviously amiss right away. Green apple, booze, vinegar, and nail polish remover. There is some roasted malt aroma in there too. Maybe a bit of char and coffee.
T: This is a beer that hurts to drink. An enormous amount of nail polish remover and extremely acidic. It burns the throat and tongue a bit. Some harsh roasted malt and maybe coffee, but it’s sort of hard to tell/care.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: Simply painful and atrocious. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle @ Odense Tasting, Jan 2011. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Chocolate and mild coffee roast. A bit of smoke, dark fruit and hops. Full bodied and smooth. Nice Benzai (15606) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2012
Sampled at RBBSG. Pitch black opaque color, small off-white to beige head. Smell malts, coffee, roastyness. Taste roasted malts, coffee, alcohol, bitter, lightly hops. A lot of coffee and bitter, pretty decent. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draft at Oggi’s, Liberty Station Point Loma. Old fashioned Guinness aroma. Opaque brown/black color with a tan head that flattened. Smooth carbonation, medium bodied. Strong dark burnt malt flavor, but it’s not quite harsh. Underlaid with chocolate. Smooth. The finish is burnt and dry, and there seems to be a bit of bitter. Coffee? Went right by me. Good drink.
