330 ml bottle. Blackish-brown color, no head. Syrupy aroma. Dark malty flavor, some cocoa. Watery mouthfeel, low carbonation, medium body. Somewhat boring. beeR (61) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2008
33 cl bottle. Very dark brown and clear. Tan creamy head but brief. Pleasant coffee and roasty nose, not strong but rich; some liquorice and nutty hints. The flavor is more sweet than expected, evn if a roasty and coffee character outcrops after that. Medium body and low carbonation but quite mouthcoating.
Another pleasant discovery in Finland. punainen6 (93) - FINLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle. Color reminds me of mämmi. Nose has some coffee and roasted malty notes Flavor is liquorice and chocolate with some sweetness. Finishes quite dry and malty, abit too hard carbonation thought.

Clear dark to black color, small tan head. Head turns brown with swirling. Roasted, chocolate, malty grainy scent. Roasted, metallic, malty taste. Roasted aftertaste. A bit moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Bottle. Medium-bodied dark brown beer with a light brown head. A bit sweet, roasted malty aroma. The flavor is roasted malt with notes of smoke. Quite nice beer. TET (3208) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Stallhagen Dunkles is almost black beer with a medium and large bubble head. Aroma is pleasant: combination with roasted malts and sweetness plus some smoke and sourness. Flavour is very similar than aroma: some sweetness, roasted malts and still some smoke. Quite easy to drink and there could be more body. This was my first time to drink Stallhagen Dunkles, but better later than ever. Convincing beer and I will bough this also later, nice beer. raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle 0.33 l. Deep brown, almost opaque. Very very brief head when puoring. Nose is fresh, hoppy, candy sweetness. Flavor is sllightly roasted malty, candy sweetness here too, cofffee, caramel. Very flavorful. Ultra low stallhagen style carb, which makes it feel a bit stale. Easy to drink. A bit porterish. MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Bottle, 5.5% at ZBF08. Roasted malt aroma. Almost black colour. Creamy flavour, slightly sweet. Creamy flavour. Like a good mild porter. janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 19, 2008
Scant head id beige, thick and disappears fast. Leaves tiny lacing. Color is very dark reddish-brown, practically black. Aromas are sweet roasted malts, a bit chokolate. Smooth roasty malty flavors. A bit rye-bread and dry hops in the end but flavors disappears quite soon. Palate is smooth, medium-bodied.
