UPDATED: FEB 6, 2009 Bottle at Bishops Arms Västra Hamngatan, Gothenburg, Sweden.SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Pitch black, brown head. Sweet fruity chocolate scent. Rich mouthfeel. Chocolate and burnt flavor. Burnt after taste. Medium bitterness.
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" in June 2005.
Very nice bottle, well worth bying just to have a good look at it! Nice dark color. Lots of fruitiness in the scent and taste. Mouth feel is like if you had oats in it, very lean. Burnt after taste that last for a few seconds before it’s gone.

Had a couple of bottles of this as "Vildmakrshotellet" in Kolmården, Sweden, on January 27, 2009
Just genertally got the feeling I liked this better than I could remember and looking back at my numbers in the rating think it deserves a bit higher numbers.

Poured dark. Opaque. No head, some carbonation. Aroma was sweet but faint. Light Chocolate notes, and very sweet. Bready, and bitter in the finish. No aftertaste. Syrupy mouthfeel, light bodied. Dry finish. I was super disappointed, to bready and sweet, where is my coffee, chocolate flavor? To light bodied for a stout.
16.9oz: Pours a dark black color, almost no head, tan-colored. Strong aroma of coffee, mocha, some chocolate, some hops. Very fizzy, taste of coffe, chocolate, slight pale bitter aftertaste. Light texture, not thick. jrob21 (3690) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Port wine aromas overpowered my first impression. Surprisingly light bodied with a hint of hops I wasn’t expecting. Easy to drink but due to a lack of depth and complexity to the taste. Quick finish and bitter aftertaste. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2006
[bottle from peckhams] Aroma of roasted coffee, bitter chocolate and a touch of smoke. full body, sweet upfront leads to a bitter finish.

Dark Chocolate & Chiccory Coffee taste. Very low in carbination gives more depth to the flavor. Dry aftertaste. A wonderful beer, dark & flavorful, in a beautiful bottle. smcd (366) - USA - MAR 15, 2006
(500ml Bottle. 03/2006) Some coffee aromas and hints of licorice. Inky black with a tiny brown head that disappears quickly. No film. No lace. Roasty, coffee flavors. Some hint of sourness on the back of the palate. Chocolate notes. Dry, bittersweet finish. Tasty. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 15, 2006
(500 ml bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/freeport/ target=blank>Derosier’s) Pours a very dark coffee brown with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet with notes of coffee, sweet chocolate, maybe molasses. Some lacing. Taste is a blend of rich coffee and chocolate, a bit of prune juice, with a moderately bitter finish. Had a sort of sweet and sour quality that I wasn’t super fond of but still a quality stout. Mouthfeel fairly thick and smooth. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2006
Pours amazingly, beautiful black liquid with a rich brown head, which stays throughout. Aroma is roasted coffee malts with a little more grassy hops than expected. Taste is similar, though maybe a little thinner than expected, but dangerously drinkable. A decent beer and better than i expected from this brewery.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 RE-RATE (1-18-2007): 1 pint, .9oz brown bottle from A-1 to-go. Black, almost completely opaque body with only feignt ruby-red high-lights around the edges - one of the darkest beers I’ve had. A really thin film of light tan head. Smells malty and roasty with a hint of banana or licorice? Tastes mostly like burnt malt, with a fair bit of sweetness, presumably from the cream. Mouthfeel is a bit lighter than expected, a bit aqueous, which helps the drinkability. But the burnt astringency kind of hurts it... Still this is quite a nice little stout. I could see myself getting this sometimes.
