3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown lasting head. Hazy deep brown almost opaque body. Sulphury coffee aroma with rye notes. Dry-sweet burnt rye grain taste with sugary notes. Very harmonic and delicate. Mid- to thin body. Dry straw, chocolate, and coffee aftertaste with floral peppery hop notes. Dry burnt rice and coffee taste settles in the mouth as you drink. Very nice! Grew on me as I drank. (0.3l draft at plan b, Copenhagen.)

Draught at the brewpub, a cloudy light brown with a large creamy off-white head. A strong orange and caramal malt aroma. A fuller mouthfeel, well balanced between the malt and hops. Citrus flavours come from the hops, along with coffee tones from the malt, along with stewed fruits and some caramal. A bittering swallow. Such complexity!
