Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Deep brown to black with a medium, fairly creamy, beige head. Aroma has heavy vanilla caramel sweetness, almost like Werthers Echte. Rye bread, oak, sweet toffee. Lowish carbonation, fat and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has surprisingly little toffee - there is some, but fairly subdued. Heavy oak at first, roasted malts,lots of vanilla, milky chocolate, dry and roasted. Very nice, even if the aroma is a bit much. And the original was better.
Thank you Derek for this 22oz bottle! Poured a dark brownish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of wood/oak, vanilla, some bourbon, nutty, chocoalte, roast, and earthy. Tastes of vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits, chocolate, nuts, roast, and wood. Very nice!

A lovely schwartzbier. Pours black, white head, with mollasses and pleasant bourbon aroma. Above average mouthfeel, a little grain substance. Very drinkable. Pinball (12145) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
clear brown, smooth offwhite yellowish head.
aroma is nutty, roasted grains, licorice
flavor is licorice, wood (barrel aged notes) , roasted rains. well balanced, well tasting i’d say imperial stout, not schwarzbier. barrel aged notes dominate.
