Ends with a smooth to sharp roasted malt flavour. Ungstrup (38246) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2004
What a great beer to celebrate my 1.500th rating. Thanks to Jeppe (BierKönig) for sharing this one with me. It pours black and has a fine brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of smoke and coffee. And the flavor is sweet too with notes of smoke and coffee before the sweetness gives way to a great bitter end. A fantastic flavor in a fantastic beer with a great body. This is the best beer I've tasted so far - and comes very close to 5.0. joergen (29007) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005

Bottled (2004 vintage). Very dark brown/close to black colour, small brown head, that disappears fast. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, slightly hoppy and caramellish. Flavour is roasted malts, hops, some coffee and wood. The hoppyness disturbs me a bit, otherwise it’s a very nice and wellbalanced impy stout.

17th September 2008. Opaque black stout. Smooth silky start - good RIS palate. However hops bloom quickly and dominate through to the finish. Not bad but over hoppy for an RIS!
