Thanks to Kris for the sweet in-person trade. Deep dark black beer with a thick beige head. Very sticky and chewy with a lovely nose. Lots of soft chewy cocoa with a bit of black licorice as well. Toasted chocolate and a bit of dry cocoa as well. At it warms the cocoa and chocolate really picks up. Lots of big herbal/earthy hoppy flavour. Long lingering bitterness. Really solid brew.

Great look with fat light brown head. Aroma-flavor of flowerwood, coffeechocs, small hints of smoke, roasty bitterness, good carbonation and a longlasting brew ending up bitter for an hour. faroeviking (10911) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 11, 2009
Botella, thanks Pinball. Pitch black colour with a steady nice light brown creamish head leaving a good lacing. Soke aroma with chocolate and roasty malt. Great mouthfeel. The flavour has lots of roasted malt with smoke, coffee, chocolate, a very pleasant bitterness and a long lasting roasty smokey dry finish. Yum! FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Black colour with a creamy light brown head. Rich aroma and taste of roasted malts and coffee. Nice bitter finish. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 7, 2009
Dark brown with a small light brown head. Mainly roasted malt aroma, mixed with some chocolate and citrus hops and wood. Bitter roasted and hoppy flavor with some sweet chocolate in there leading to a dry bitter roasted finish. Great brew!

Pours a dark ruby brown near black with a foamy head. Aroma is very hoppy and piney which cuts through a lot of roast and chocolate- hoppy stout/porterish more than a black IPA. Flavor is citrus hops, pine, roast, acrid bitter malts go with the bitter citrus hops ok, bittersweet nestle chocolate chips, with a nutty sweeter chocolate- like tootsie rolls, Nice clean finish with a nice drying aftertaste. Good. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2009
50cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head and lacings. Nose is hard roasted coffee and ashtray. Some smoked malts and chocolate. Low carbonation. Good & well made. charlotte (5384) - rødovre, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle.Pitch black colour with creamy beige head.Aroma is strong rosted with taste of coffee and licorice.Nice full body and flavor of tar and earth. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle: Dark, near opaque with a dense & well retained khaki head. Nice rich chocolaty aroma- thick black malt, light sweet peat notes, smooth roast. Creamy slick body- richly malt flavor- good chocolate character while remaining dry with an earthy light smoky note when it warms and a nice bittering hop character making it very drinkable in its richness. Residual mocha-like presence briefly hits the back. Very nice stout! Skinnyviking (9569) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 25, 2009
Bottle. High cereamy and lasting light brown head. Very dark red brown almost black body. Roasted barley malt aroma with nuts coffee and cocoa. A bit sharp and hoppy roasted malt aroma with caramel coffee and cococo. I am afraid that the alcohol is too dominant as the beer feels pretty agressive. High carbonation, long aftertaste.
