3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg at CBC2012, from some old notes. Jet black, small beige head. Lots of roast on the nose, not picking up much coffee or chocolate. Flavour is one-dmineionsla, some roast with a bit of sweet malt, again no real power to the mocha flavour. Disappointing

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 7.5% ABV
Black color, with small head. Aroma of roasted malt and stale bread; some good coffee and fire cooked polenta. The body is lean and the mouthfeel quite dry; flavor of roasted malts with a touch of dark chocolate and smoke; some aromatic coffee; some of the bitterness is supplied by the dark malts. The final gets drier and drier. Pleasant.
