Tap at Pegasus, Cph: Black creamy beer with a large and foamy head. The aroma offers notes of coffee, liquorice, caramel and chocolate. The taste is malty, sweet and strongly toasted leading to a surprisingly soft, but spicy finish with notes of vanilla and licorice. Not as rich as the ABV suggests. Very soft and delicious.
