Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

Koelschtrinker (10514) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Intensiver und aromatischer Malzantrunk mit starken Schokoladennoten. Hocharomatisch, dabei ziemlich süß, was das intensive aber nur wenig röstige Malz ausgleicht. Recht intensiv, zum Ende trocken-schokoladig, angenehm. Intensives Erlebnis! 9/13/8/13//13

Draught. Deep dark brown close to black colour with a nice beige ehad. Roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, some smoke in aroma. Good filling mouthfeel. The flavour is very pleasant with roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and some wood, pleasant hoppiness. Well present but soft bitterness. Nice!

Tap (White Horse, Parson’s Green, London)
7 Massively meaty beef stock aroma.
4 Black, tan ring head.
8 Rich roasty coffee taste, gently bitter from burntness, but not astringent.
4+ Ludicrously full palate, slick and smooth. Just a gentle hint of carbonation.
17 Covers the alcohol well, but you can tell it’s a big beer.
