Big bottle purchased at Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Carried back home and shared with Finn at a dinner party with the ladies. Huge, tan-coloured head resting on top of a devil black body with a brownish shade. Aroma is mid-sweet with earth and roasted malts. Roasted dark malty in flavour including a touch of chocolate. Sweet ending offset by bitter roastiness. Easy to drink. Paired well with our food (Skibotn, 06.10.2012). Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 20, 2012
from Erzbierschof.ch - black beer under a solid long lasting dark beige foam; nice lacework; very roasted aroma of mocha and ashes; a respectable malt backbone and a fair tart bitterness; very tasty palate; long and dry toasted coffeish aftertaste with more kingering notes of ashes - lot of character thewolf (12535) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2010

Very dark chestnut with a small, fizzy, cola-like head. Aroma has lovely notes of coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Quite crisp. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and lightish mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly balanced, very dry. Lots of coffee, hard roasted malts, muscovado sugar, dark chocolate. Long lasting, dry and fairly bitter aftertaste with some flowery hoppiness. Very nice.
22oz bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis. Poured a dark, deep brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of lots of roast, light chocolate, and some nuttiness. Tastes of roast, chcooalte, nuts, and more charred malts. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2008

I like the style, and buying the bomber at Gordon’s in Watham, I was a bottle past my 12-packer for the plane. Hence an enjoyable and informative sharing with Jeff at Jaspar’s in Nashua. Roasty aroma, black body with permanent off-white little head, with a great drinkability, and this is 10 minutes in the fridge on a warm day. Balanced with a tad of fruitiness, and complexity in the roasted black malt. Pinball (12063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
