UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Hazy brown with a small beige head. Earth, mould, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. The flavor is mouldy and sweet. Medium to full body. A nice one. Rating: 7-3-7-3-14-3.4. 061028

Bottle. It’s a clear, brown beer topped by a dense, beige head. Brown sugar, some tea and roasted malts on the nose. The flavor is of the sweet kind, with roasted malts, brown sugar and some tea. Medium to full body, quite sweet. A decent beer indeed, but nothing extraordinary. Sort of mixes with the crowd. 091127

Pretty strong for a "mild stout". Biting aftertaste reminds me of a sour milk stout. Definitely notice some brown sugar and earthy tones in this one. Rated 9/20/08

bhensonb (15195) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Aroma of rich dark fruit. Really fantastic. Deep reddish brown with a truly significant tan head. Starts with plum, moving to toasted malt, notes of chocolate, always an edge of sour. Substantial mouthfeel. There’s sweetness, but more caramel/toffee than malty. Well balanced with bitterness. Definitely not a Belgian candy treat. Just fantastic. I repeat myself. Justified.

3.6
Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2006
Draught at "Den Tatoverede Enke". Very dark, almost black - light brown head. High malty, coffee, red berries, light sweetness, nice body, dark bread, nice hopped. A bit like fresh baked dark raisin-bread and a cop of coffee.
