3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 500 ml, thanks to bursprak! Into a snifter, ABV 11%
Pours a totally black beer with one finger of dark brown head. Average retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate malts, something acidic like balsamico vinegar as well.
Taste follows the aroma with roasted malts, a hint of chocolate and a lot of sourness that just doesn’t fit. The only possitive is the alcohol is not notable at all and in no case tastes like an 11% beer. At least the sourness seems to lose its edge after the beer has warmed up a bit but it’s still there.
Medium thick body, carbonation on good levels. A numbing feeling on the palate.
Overall, this one had potential but the unexpected sourness ruins the whole experience.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske: Kulsort let olieret øl. Masser af lakrids i duften. Brændt smag med mere lakrids. Al for engelsk til min smag, men faktisk udmærket håndværk. Latterligt at understrege det er dansk, når det nu er fantombrygget, men det er nok bare mig.

Bottle from Voldby Koebmandsgaard. Pours very black with a dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts. Horrible taste of something indescribable. Long creamy sour finish. Definitely not my favorite stout.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours ink black with a medium sized mocca head. Aroma of roasted malts and licorice. Taste like aroma plus coffee and a double dose of dishcloth used for wiping metalshavings and lemonpeels off the floor. Medium body. It has a long strange bittersour aftertase which is not enjoyable at all. Brewers; remember to avoid brewing your beer in the same tank as your wash your socks in.
