Clear dark black color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, excellent lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, burnt, caramel, chocolate, moderate soap. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy, carbonation is soft. 
75 cL ceramic bottle. Pours pitch black with a creamy chocolate brown head. Aroma is hard roasted malt, light hoppy fruity and chocolate dense. Flavour starts solid roasted malty with a distinct acidic note, light chalky too. Bitter and slowly going into a mild marmelade sweet and hops fruity finish. Main impression in the finish however is bitterness and a lingering hardroasted malt acidity. Quite intense yet also nicely smoothend.

A black beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coffee, chocolate, as well as roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee and chocolate, as well as light touches of the alcohol. The mouthfeel is smooth, yet the alcohol prickles the tongue. Nice one. joergen (28106) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006

Bottled. Black opaque colour, mediumsized brown head. Alcohol, hops, chocolate and coffee in aroma. Roasted malt, sweet sugar, chocolate, coffee, caramel in flavour. Also some very sweet hints.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 Bottled (2001 edition). Once the ketchup effect let me shake the beer out of the bottle it comes out black hole black with near black head. Licorice and coffee aroma. It has chocolate mousse mouthfeel andtastes like molasses. Still it’s dry and very salty, has some grapepfruit hoppiness to it, and manages to stay at least decently balanced, despite a bitterness that must be way over 50 IBUs. This beer is HUGE!, and also really good. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 (Bottle 35, 5 cl) Pours a tar like opaque blackness with a creamy, light brown head. Burned, caramelish aroma. Markedly full-bodied with toasted malts and a distinct burned, malty finish. A huge beer. 270106 and 240307 madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2009
26th August 2008. Starts off smooth, silky with a little chocolate but then the bitterish coffee blooms and dominates. Good but has too rough an edge to be one of the great RISs. My bottle says 11.0% abv. Travlr (24691) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Black with light tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, flavor of cafe au lait, decent bitter finish.
