4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Huge dense work creamy brown head that really lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Pitch black bubbly color. Lovely and strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, liquorish. Also sweet chocolate and a hint of berries. Over the palate came a solid base of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Also some underlying floral – hoppy notes. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat dry and at the same time thick texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor in balance. Tasty liquorish and roasted malty finish with a touch of sweet chocolate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[on tap at EBF 2008]
Vanilla aroma with some pleasant sweet, roastiness and definite hops (British?). Reddish-opaque black with nice light brown ring and dots. Very good, dry roasty flavour with a nice bitter bite and some hops bitterness. Mostly roast but still a little sweet malt. Perceptible hops flavour. Dry finish, clean, moderate carbonation, does not seem like 7%.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
EBF2008. Fru Frederiksen is a pitch black lady with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt and a little chocolate. The flavour has a light, smooth and mellow malty sweetness and a light roasted bitterness and notes of coffee, light caramel, licorice and a little chocolate. The balance is very nice indeed, and it’s a beer you feel at home in, so to speak, and I would love to have boxes and boxes of this in my cellar.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
100ml, draught. My last one (of about 70 tasters) at the splendid European Beer Festival in Copenhagen 08. Thanks to David for the last token!
Dark as the devil with a fawn coloured head. The smell consists basically of black coffee with moderate roastiness. Coffee grounds up front leading to a more cappuccino-like flavour, complemented by bitter liquorice. Warming alcohol. A satisfying roundup after three drinking days at the festival (14.09.2008).
