3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub
Black in glass, thin tanned head. Smells of liquorice, roasted malts, some hints of diacetyl (which suits this beer quite well). Taste is medium sweet, liquorice and scruff, quite dry, not much yeast characters. Moderate bitter. This is really not my glass of beer; too weird and i’m not that fan of scruff. Still i have to say it has several interesting aspects. I think it’s cool that we again can taste this banned brew

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Dark brown, almost black body with a small, dense beige head. Pleasant aroma dominated by liquorices and some dark malt. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, some dry fruit, spicy, pleasant bitterness and quite much liquorices that becomes more dominating in the aftertaste. Fine and balanced body, smooth aftertaste. A nice beer on the sweeter side, quite smooth. I think this one is tasting closer to the second version from Midtfyn as the liquorices is more obvious than in the original version. A very nice beer anyway.
