Bottle. A mahogany brown with soapy tan head. Aromas are malt, earth, herbal and pepper. It is lightly sweet and the bitterness is balanced. Smoke. Body is light but soft and soapy with a dry, clean end. It’s not very inviting to me but is very complex for how easy a beer it is to drink. Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2009
On tap at Nørrebro Bryghus.
Pours dark brown with a tan head.
There is lots of chocolate in the aroma, summed up with liquorice and weak notes of roasted malt and coffee.
Flavour is coffee, liquorice, tan and slight notes of chocolate.
The heavy roasted coffee, liquorice aftertaste quickly disappears. Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Pours dark black with very little head. Dark and roasty malt with a little coffee. Flavor is a bit light for the look and smell, but a nice smooth roasted flavor. Slightly sweet, but overall pretty nice. brianprentiss (702) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 25, 2008
Well, this is about as good as it gets in the lager/schwarbier category. It’s smoky and charcoaly and overly roasted for my tastes, but if you like this type of beer I’m sure this will be a winner. scoth (685) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Pours clear dark brown, inky in the glass, cherry brown around the edges, with a two-finger tan head, very good and lasting lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, toasted rye bread, and grass. Medium-thin body, lively, crisp, lightly dry. Lightly sweet flavor, a touch savory, more coffee, rye bread, and some citrus. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Pours a deep dark black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Flavor of roasted malts, coffee, and bitterness. Seems to be overly carbonated, but is still quite good. killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Half-pint from Chuck’s @ $3.00. I’m rather surprised on how high this rating is. This tasted bland and watered down (literally water-like). It might have something to do with the palate ruiner I had previously with habanero peppers. Drink4Satan (677) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Pours a near black colour with ruby edges and a minimal beige head. The nose is or earthy hops, old coffee, mild cocoa, and some roasted malt and vegetal notes. The flavour is as the aroma suggests, with some medium roasted malts, old, burnt coffee, herbal hops, char, peat, and a vegetal sweetness. The finish is dry and roasty with old coffee notes lingering the longest. The palate is velvety smooth up front, but it finishes watery, while the aftertaste somehow lasts for a while. I would definitely buy this again during this season. ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Bomber. I was very surprised by this being called a lager. It seems to me much more like a porter. Its dark and thick. The flavor has a very malt and roasty coffee flavor. Easy to drink but very thick and chewy which is different from other lagers that i’m familiar with. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Had on tap at St. Stevens with Katie. Pour was. Thick dark brown almost black with medium lacing off white head. Aroma is roasted Manta, coffee like. Flavor is a rush of chocolate and molasis. Coffee follows.through into the aftertaste
