Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours completely black with a nice, staying, creamy, brown, film head. Aroma is very soft, chocolate and coffee, cocoa and liquorice. Super soft mouthfeel, great for the ABV. Flavour has smoke, dark chocolate, softly roasted and some coffee. Pleasantly dry, bitter, long aftertaste with light liquorice. Super.

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.

Bottle at Churchkey. Silky black with a sexy beige head. Delicate lacing, and nice legs! Scent of licorice, smoked espresso, nutmeg, and chastity. She is a bit drier than her husband, more subtle, slightly sweet, with flavors of prunes and grapes, but a spicy edge of black pepper. Very attractive.
