Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Dark, near-black brown body with a small white head. Aroma is licorice, leather, hints of burnt toast and a stomach-acid-neutralizer called "Nyco" in Norway. Strange. Taste is chocolate, roasty grain notes, hints of chocolate and bread. Fair enough. Medium body and carbonation. No winner, but not the worst I’ve had. BoltonDK (572) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2013

Aroma has nice licorice notes with some coffee. Flavour has soy sauce, salty licorice, ash and some vegetables. Aroma was nice but flavour is, well, not so good.
50 cl bottle @ Timo A.lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Pours deep dark red, almost black color with a medium, rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of mild espresso, toasted malts, hints of caramel, fruits and mild hops. Flavor of ashy chocolate, toasted malts, sourish fruits, caramel and goose berries. High CO2, bitter and a bit sourish palate.
500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.flemmingwillum (1243) - Nysted, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2012
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, raisins and some hay notes. Flavour of roasted malts, strong grassy hops, bubblegum, dried apricot, yeast and some juicy fruitiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a fruity, roasty and quite yeasty finish. Somewhat unbalanced. Also reminds me of a black IPA somehow.
Rating #775, bottle from my sister.
Black; or rather very dark brown beer with a solid and dense beige head. Yeast fragments are present in bottle and glass as well- nothing to complain about when it comes to the appearance. Roasted aroma with notes of liqourice, but also some menthol and undefineable tart aromas. Dry, roasted and liqouricy flavour with a bit pepper, alcohol and decent bitterness, all ending in a medium bitter and bit ashy feel. Ordinary stout palate. A no bullshit true-to-style stout, but don’t expect any fancy ingredients or non-nessecary features. nazzty (1377) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Sour and bitter root beer? Ugh, ugh, this was almost undrinkable. There’s something strange and sour with the Danish stouts. KoNrRiI (1716) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2012
0.5 bottle. Black in color, head is tanned, medium-sized and quite retaining. Malty aroma, mostly dark dessert chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and some dark bread together with caramel. Malty bittersweet taste, coffee and chocolate predominate the sensation, balanced and not obtrusive, somewhat woody, very pleasant. Body is between medium and full, texture slick but at the same time somewhat oily. Carbonation is very soft on its way to flat. Finish is balanced and follows the taste although regrettably it is kind of watery and soft. All in all it is a great brew with only minor flaws, worth recommending.
