A Sim rate (tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival): Sharp, whisky aroma but with a creamy edge. Sweet brown sugar & coffee. Appearance is pitch black with a brown head. Burnt toast & roast coffee beans in the amazing flavour. It’s creamy coffee... not with skimmed milk as I make it these days, but made with half-and-half, how I no longer dare. So thick that it sticks to your palate. So, so good!
