Pours clearish and almost black with a beige head. The nose is pretty special - in a good way. Pretty much excactly like ’skrå’ or the nonsweet chewing tobacco. So lots of dry licorice with a vinous twist. Big lightly smoky malt attack on the palate with even more licorice and maybe a hint of 80% dark chocolate adding to the bitterness but adds mild sweetness as well. Slightly bitter aftertaste on mostly licorice and smoked meats. A legendary beer where I’m from. The type of beer that sparks an interest in people for craftbeer. mikeyo1 (871) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle @ home, cellared five years. Best before 2012. Pours dark brown with a minimal head. Aroma of delicate milk chocolate, plums, dried figs, coffee, toffee, slight licorice, smoke, hints of charcuteries and ash. Medium to big body with good duration. Smooth texture. Taste is slightly sweet vinous with plums, figs, milk chocolate, toffee. Finish has coffee, licorice and more dark fruits. Lingering chocolate and balanced bitterness. Has aged incredibly well. Awesome. Werckmeister (3329) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 8, 2016
0,33l bottle at home as part of Euro Local Swap courtesy of SlackerMads, big thanks for this one. BB 17.06.2017. almost black color, medium big coffee-colored head. smells of mint, spices, tobacco, milky, plums, nuts. ok smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes milky, spices, tobacco, cardboard, caramel, light grassy, nutty, marzipan. finishes lightly dry with notes of cardboard and tobacco. tastes rather simple and a bit on the cardboard-ish side, not a big fan, maybe some issues with my bottle. neongolden (1826) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
(330ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours black with a small off white head that fades to a ring. Aroma of roasted and burnt malt, moderate smoke, spent coffee grounds, ash, dark bread, slight baker’s chocolate core, a little liquorice, only slightly sweet from the malt core. Flavour is slightly more sweet but still dominated by impressive layers of roasted and burnt malts, ashy, somewhat smoky, bitter black coffee, some dried fruit, liquorice, a bit of dark caramel, earth, and fairly substantial liquorice that builds into the finish. Combined with burnt malt and coffee grounds, it makes for a dry bitter finish with lingering smoke. Medium bodied with slightly above average but smooth carb. Interesting burnt/smoked profile ends up being a better pair for liquorice than expected, a dry roasty beer with surprising depth.

Bottle from Holmen1 - thanks Jan Magnus! Black as pitch with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and a massive taste of great complexity. Smokey flavours of bonfire and cigar ash. Lots of liquorice, coffee, dried fruit, Demerara sugar and pine resin. Excellent, rich and unctious mouthfeel. A really great stout, or ’double brown stout’ as it says on the label. A spectacularly fine beer from Thisted.
