Bottle @ home birthday gift from Faroeviking... Thanks my friend! ... vintage 2007... It pours pitch black with a small bubbly tan head... the aroma is coffee beans and chocolate... The flavor is thin waterish, coffee and actually nothing else... Japalo (1887) - DENMARK - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle. Exp. 2007. No head. Black. Low
Carbonation. Roasted malty notes. Sweet dry taste and a oily finish. Still well balanced. Maybe SOD's grandfather. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012

Opaque black beer, semi soft and semi dry palate. Minerally malt with quite a light touch of coffee. Left some thick brown sludge at the bottom of the glass. Semi crisp and dry minerally finish. Quite lightweight.
Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of roasted malt, liqurice and sweets. A flavor of roasted malt, bitter and weak sweets. NosirIwont (2591) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle. 4 years past ’best before’. Pours pitch black with a greyish-brown head. Berry-tart aroma. Roasted notes. Slightly oxidized and slight acetone notes. Flavour is berry-tart, oxidized and sour. Sour, roasted finish. No coffee notes to be found. Overall, this has seen better days. 25.09.10.

Black pour, red shine, brown head. Aroma has coffee, roast, chocolate, berry sweetness. Taste has cold coffee, liquorice, cinnamon, oxidation, burned popcorn. JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
Deep brown beer with almost no head. Aroma is a bit strange. Wet damp malts, some dark malty character, light coffee aroma and a bit of oxidized leather. Musty and dank and pretty shitty really. Not very good at all. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
.5 liter bottle. Pours a deep dark brownish black with a foamy beige head and some sticky lace. Aroma is chocolate and coffee yogurt, with some weird crayon, waxy esters- cetyl ester-like, and palm-oily with hints of nutty roasted charred chocolate. Flavor is very chocolate with dirty yeast, almost salty oxidation with leather that makes it tasted like a wet dog! Chocolate and harsh roast in the end with a bit more esters and wax. Probably past its prime- not sure if this would have been good fresh though. PilsnerPeter (3050) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle: Weird waxy aroma (phenols?) with a chocolate note underneath. Some sulfuric notes as well (lit match). Slick body with a weird flavor. Waxy, plasticy phenolics, stale tobacco, burning candle and papery notes. I’m not sure if this bottle was a victim of oxidation or what, but this stuff was off. Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a small dark brown bubbly head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma of dry coffee with light roasted malt notes. Taste is a well balanced mix between some roasted malt with notes of dry coffee. Body has an oily texture with low carbonation and a nice creamy texture. Bottle has some age on it but still very drinkable with great notes of coffee.
