On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade. The draft has a somewhat opaque black body with a thin finger of tan foam and a few lacing rings. The nose is not as robust nor roasted as I would predict with a sweet malty roast and light coffee and licorice notes floating elegantly together. The flavour is sweet with a light pervasive roasted flavour as well as a splash of vanilla bean, french roast and dark chocolate. This is a good attempt but only moderately well executed in my opinion.
