3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black as the hell it is worshiping. The head is cappochinolike-brownish with huge bubbles. Unfortunately it fades away to quick. The nose is dominated with chocolate but also alcohol, malts and hops... scient of winther. The taste is very sweet with dry fruits and a nice bitter finish. There is chocolate up-front and a certain spicyness like (sorry) some heavy christmas beers. The palate is nice thick and creamy

Keg (EBF2008, Copenhagen)
Zingy hoppy aroma, fruity too. Sticky burnt taste. Huge zingy mouth, tons of roasty choco body. Burnt finish. A bit too alcoholic, but not offensive. A little sticky too. Potent. Prefer the other two.
