Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours completely opaque black with a dense and creamy light brown head. Aroma of burned malt with some vanilla. Medium body, somewhat raw burned malts with an ashy edge, lightly sweet vanilla and a fairly malt bitter finish. 200409 Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours black-brown with a fine, white foam head. Tangy dark malt nose. More tangy dark malts in the flavor, some dusty cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, light roast, mild tang. Seems old, not in top condition. Would be kind of weak to bring an out-of-shape beer to the fest. But this beer was just OK.

Mild würziger Antrunk, kernig malzig. Im Mittelteil etwas laff, nur noch wenig würzig, süß getreidig, monoton. Zum Ende wieder etas malziger mit bitterem Unterton. 11/11/9/7/7/8 fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011

Black color; creamy beige head. Aroma of burnt coffee (do you know that coffee should be roasted, not burnt like Starbucks and the likes do???), and the dusty Danish yeast. Reasonable body strength, good dark chocolate flavor, roasted malt, limited but pleasant residual sweetness; bold bitterness. Solid and pleasant, without being impressive.
Bottle. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are smoke, roast malt, coffee and hops. mcberko (19201) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at Apex, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of light smoke and medium roasted malt – not too smoky. Flavour of lightly ashy smoke, roasted malt and some dry cocoa. Full-bodied, with a tasteful amount of smoke. Very solid stuff. Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2009
Murky dark brown. Very coffeeish with hazelnut aromas, light vanilla and a hint of chocolate. Woody, thin character with a sweet, syrupy background. Toasty in the finish. This never really comes together after a promising aroma. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2011
