3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar Victoriagade. Pours translucent black with a frothy mocha head that leaves a small trace on the glass while
dissipating. Smell is slightly malty and fruity with roasted malts, burnt crisp bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, moist
grass, pine needles, resin, coffee and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter, slightly malty and slightly fruity. Mouthfeel is soft, round,
slightly astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, grapefruit, mango, pineapple,
coffee, moist grass, pine needles, resin, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Bit too sweet and a bit too strong but nose is top CDA stuff.

Tap (TCBW15) (6:4:6-:3:11=3.0-)
Odd aroma. Pungent hops, a nice roast, but no synergy between the two. Ditto the taste - they’re fighting each other. This is just an IPA with added darkness. Good example of why I don’t like the style.
