Vestergaard (871) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at CBC15! Pours a murky black with a red hue. Brown, dense head. Aroma has first of all lots of coffee, and only a little bit of coco nut. Dark fruits, roasty malts, dark chocolate. Taste is pretty roasty bitter with a subtle vanilla-coco-nut-sweetness. Full body and avg-low carbonation. Disapointing to be honest!
