2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml cask conditional, enjoyed in the bier garten of the brewpub. A few patchworks on the surface. Dark, almost black body. Dark malty to the nose. Flavoured with dark fruits and tart berries sustained by roasted malts. Dark fruity bitter endnotes. OK, but a bit thin and a little bit out of tune (Copenhagen, 14.05.2009).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Black and opaque with a small light brown head. Aroma of hard roasted malt and licorice. Medium body, a little low in carbonation, hard roasted malts and ashy accents with an edge of coffee. Ends fairly malt bitter. Not much hop hop character in spite of the dryhopping. Has a vague underlying tartness which I bet comes from the malt also - Weyermann Carafa 2? 210409
