Pours black. Tan head. Nose of smoke, peat and chocolate malt. Taste is ashy chocolate malt and smoke. Underwhelming. yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It pours a next to black body under a tan head of medium size. Slgihtly oaked (peat?) nose with roasted malts, some burnt notes, coffee and alcohol. Charcoal, coffee, sweetness and some warmth in the mouth, rather dry, even though there’s some sweetness present. Roasted finish. A nice beer that I would like to have more of.

Black, tan head. Stodgy porridgy aroma, and loads of elastoplast. Massively dry and ashy palate. However, it’s quite tasty, plenty of fruity and citrussy hops.
Bottle at home shared with DutchDrebus. Pitch black opaque color, brown head. Nice fruity hints in the aroma with caramel and roastyness. Taste malts, a bit sweet and bitter and some coffee. Nice carbo, medium body. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 2, 2011
A: The beer pours a very dark brown, pretty much black, color with a thin layer of tan head.
S: Can you say nail polish remover? I thought I was having a Drake’s barrel aged beer for a moment. Huge nail polish remover, acetone, and ash with a very, very harsh acidity to it.
T: Just a horrible flavor as well. Ashy and chalky with sharp acidic notes. The nail polish remover and acetone notes are in full force on the flavor as well.
M: Medium in body with a low to medium carbonation and a lingering burning sensation.
O: Truly awful stuff. Dedollewaitor (16393) - 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. MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2009
Draught at KØ09. Cloudy black colour. Very small light brown head. Slightly rough bitterness. Faint hint of coffee. Too much malt bitterness for me. bhensonb (15761) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours really dark brown with a 3 finger frothy/foamy tan head. Aroma seems mostly chocolate at first, then a bit smokey. Not getting hop. There’s also a burning sensation in the nose from excessive and repetitive deep inhaling. Full bodied. There’s smoke, there’s chcoolate, there’s citrus bitter. The smoke isn’t bacon. It’s frickin burnt wood. Like charred, quenched and left to moulder. That’s not bad, it’s just kind of charcoal. And it seems chocolate always comes back in the end. Finishes dry and moderately bitter. Now I’m thinkin charcoal and baking chocolate. This is pretty complexly changeable, if you can have complex with about 3 primary inputs.
