Bottle. Black with brow non-lasting head. Aroma is very intense with lot’s of fruit, roastiness and coffee. Taste is full of fruit and roasted barly, dark bitter chocolate notes. Hoppy bitter tasty comes in the end. yespr (47113) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
33 cL bottle, 2008 edition. Pours almost fully black with a small tan head. Dark and hardroasted malt aroma. Flavour too is quite dominantly hardroasted malt with a light chocolate smoothness. Bitter and slight acidic flavours arising. Light coffee like note. Smooth finish with a nice acidity and bitterness. Ungstrup (38246) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2003
A black beer with a fine light brown head. The aroma is slightly smoked and sweet - too sweet for a stout. The flavor is smoked, sweet from a good maltblend, and slightly bitter. It is not stouty enough - I was a little disappointed. joergen (29007) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2005
Black colour with small brown head. Aroma of nuts, dried fruit and a bit smoke. Sweet flavour with notes of nuts and chocolate, well balanced bitteness. The alcohol is well hidden, and though the high alcohol volume, its still very drinkable.
Excellent stout. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2006

Dark black with brown head. More mature than when I first tried it. Some fruitiness up front, then loads of coffee and licorice. The malt profile is still kind of simpistic though.
Sampled the pre-release draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.madmitch76 (25382) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2011
Dark black with brief beige head. Rich chocolate aroma. Full bodied and rather sweet, but not very firm. Big on licorice flavour with an odd note of plastic. Molasses and salt in the finish. (7/4/6/3/12)

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark and sumptuos but avoids that oily feel. A good level of dark chocolate and bags of sweet and velvety malt. Very very smooth malty finish. No bitterness,
