Vestergaard (865) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at CBC15! Very very good looking stout. Pitch black with a dense, dark brown head. Aroma has very dark chocolate, bourbon, salty caramel, licorice and roasty malts. Taste is very roasty and dry, but with a huge, full body like syrup! Caramel, slight sweetness and again some salt. Crazy body, low carb!
