3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Biggish brown head. Clear deep dark red body. Roasty chocolate and coffee aroma with gooseberry and wine grape notes. Dry roasty earthy chocolate taste with gooseberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry roasty coffee and earth aftertaste with long lingering resin and gooseberry notes. Excellent combination of flavour: earthy, dusty roastiness together with gooseberry hops works very well. (0.33l draft at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Almost pitch black beer with a strong creamy light brown head. The aroma is very lightly roasted, but the flavour is far deeper. It is roasted and bitter with with some coffee maltiness. Overall a reasonable stout like beer.
