Very dark almost black with brownish head.
Quite complex and quite hoppy. Very easy drinking for at stout, but calling this a Mrs. does not make it a feminin beer. I really like it.
Thank you, Christian for the birthday present:-)
I could not help buying Hr. Frederiksen, and tasting (him!?) after this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
So deep orange-amber that it appears black; deep-beige head. Mix of coffee-like stout aromas, as espresso, and hints of very serious hops - even USA - in the background. Bitterish, burnt coffee, ending on bitter chocolate; good malts preserving sweetness underneath, and a bit of ashes. Bitter finish again, partly hops. Very well-bodied; viscous, seems stronger than 7%. A stout pretending to be an Imperial Stout - one to join the Big Boys!
