COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was intended to be black, but ended up a very pleasant dark ale. The resulting ale ended up being a really well received and good drinking beer. This dark ale has a good dark malt flavours of coffee and chocolate, and has a light body for drinkability.

Bottle. Nice enough beer, nothing special but hit the spot just fine. nice caramel and roasty characteristics, but could be a little stronger for my liking.

330ml bottle from Warners at the Bay bottle shop. My first beer from Black Duck Brewery and it poured with a mountain of rocky beige foam that seemed to take forever to settle. Roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate in the aroma sets you up for what is to come in the flavour. Light in the mouth with good carbonation and smooth velvet mouthfeel.

Pinball (10801) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
clear dark amber, smooth light brown head. very mild aroma, quite faint roasted hops. flavor is roasted malts, quite dry, so much roast it’s almost acidic, but not very thick flavor.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a dark amber with a slight haze and a huge, frothy and very lively beige head that dissipates rather slowly. A subtle sweet roasty nose, caramellish too. Medium body, harder roast in the flavour, a little licorice too, and even a little late bitterness. Looks are deceiving in this one. 301112
