Bottle 65 cl. Pours an opaque dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malt, vanilla and chocolate. Medium-bodied, hard roasted malts and vanilla. Fairly bitter finish from both malts and hops. 120609 Leighton (22769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle shared at Euston Tap. Pours pitch black with a sturdy, beige head. Big and roasted malt aroma with some sugary notes. Flavor is rich, sweet and very malty, with further roast, brown sugar, caramel and faint vanilla. Medium in body with average to lively carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and acidic, with more sweet, roasted malts and faint, coffee-like bitterness. Very good beer. Rasmus40 (22127) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2011

Black color. Papery aroma. Quite basic Stout, maybe smooth and creamy, with too much burnt malt, maybe in the end (that is even quite harsh), and too bitter.
2009-05-13, draught at Nørrebro Bryghus, Copenhagen, 5-4-6-2-12=29
Black color, solid big. Aroma of roasted malt and paper. Weak body, with a sharp roasted malt flavor, somehow rounded by a smooth mouthfeel, with a quite strong ending bitterness. Not bad, but without some real vibe that the Germans can give.
On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and some bittersweet cocoa. Flavour is pretty subdued, with dry bitter cocoa, bready malts – pretty bland / flat, with no life / body. Whether this is the norm or not, I’m not sure. Disappointing stuff.

Deep ruby brown color, small beige head. Intensive coffee, cocoa powder, chocolate and caramel in the nose. Quite good body for 5% beer. Coffee, caramel, slightly ashy dark malts. Some bitter notes in the finish - not sure if it is from hops of is it bitterness of coffee. Coffeish, decent Schwarzbier.
