Rating from memory, not so much the beer but the impact. Was in Copenhagen for a weekend with the now missus a long time ago, ordered 2 pints of this, I had one sip and thought it was one of the worse things I ever tasted and ordered something else, the missus stuck it out and the only bit of luck she had was the toilet and sink were in close proximity in the hotel room. Waste of a supposed ’romantic’ weekend. Lived in Copenhagen afterwards and it may have been the bar, dirty tourist s$%^hole. faroeviking (11252) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 4, 2007
Draught. Thick black colour with a nice creamy light brown long lasting head. Aroma of well roasted malts, bitter hops, caramel, chocolate, coffee, liquorice, which appears well in the flavour. Dry chocolate bitter finish. Long aftertaste. A great brew indeed! Quinten (1062) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2006
very dark amber/red color, medium head, some, caramel, licorice and nuts, ingredients are clear. Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2006
(On tap) Almost pitch black, only a vague reddish glow. Beige coloured head leaving laces. Malty, roasted aroma. Medium body with pleasant notes of licorice and dark chocolate. Very burned malt leaving a strong bitterness. The alcohol is scaringly well hidden. 130106 hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2005
Pours black/redish with a thin tan head. Fruity, dark chocolate nose. Sweet flavour with a roasty palate, and hints of burnt coffee. Too high co2. Slightly acidic in finish.

Draught. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
Dark brown coloured with a small beige head.
Sweet aroma of liquorice, malts and muscavado sugar.
Nice and complex flavour of liquorice, grain, dark chocolate, dried fruit, malts and dried fruit.
Hoppy finish with notes of liquorice and chocolate.
Tastes like a mixture of a good porter and a decent lager, luckily the porter flavours are dominating.
It also tastes like the first porter I’ve had many years ago :-)
Draught. Black colour with a medium baige head. Light roasted malty chocolate liquorice aroma and taste, light sweet. Medium to full body and a light sweet dry finish. ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
On tap from the bar in the ground floor of my building. Thick black, with creamy tan head. Slightly fruity aroma with hints of alcohol, but not much else going on in the nose (could be due to the low temperature at which this beer was poured). The flavor is brutal; with licorice, charcoal, caramel and a long bitter aftertaste. Too carbonated, but a creamy mouth feel evolves as the beer warms. An extremely assertive and nonetheless pretty balanced beer. Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Draught at Arkade-baren, Copenhagen. madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2003
Black as the night with a nice beige head. Aroma is not too heavy but has notes of roasted malt and liquorice. Flavor is quite full of roasted malt, liquorice, smoke and coffee. Nice balanced bitterness, also in the finish. A nice and flavorfull beer that is rarely available!
Draught: Dark brown coloured. Medium lasting brownish head. Malty, light roasted aroma wiht fruit characters. Roasted malt, hops, sweetness, chocolate and liqourice in the flavour. Heavy bitter aftertaste wiht notes of liqourice. Nice one.
