37.5 cl bottle @ home (since I didn’t go to the opening in Århus today, I’m celebrating with this one instead). Pours black with a tiny tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, chocolate, dark sugar, dark fruits, liquorice, and calvados - with a roasted finish. ABV is pretty well hidden.
