2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 (50 cl bottle from Toft Vin; BBD: Illegible; ABV is 5,8%) Pours pitch black with medium, tan head that recedes quickly leaving a ring of lace. Aroma is roasted malt, dark bread and alcohol. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a heavily ascorbic and strangely boozy finish. Bready malt is far less present in the flavour, which is dominated by the ascerbic/boozy edge. I think the alcohol is less well integrated than in the Gorm.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pours pitch black, a bit surprising considering the low abv. Head is average, with little retention. Aroma is pretty nice, with milk chocolate and coffee, but with a sour note. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour has coffee and chocolate, but a bit too sweet and sour. Below average this and somewhat disappointing.

Live rating from the 2,5 hour train ride tasting session 2013:
Bottle: Thought I got this one from Papsø: thanks!
Goddamn, first beer and a gusher, black beer all over the train, lol.
We better have had the worst of gushers...
Ok, a pitch black beer with a finger thick (was thicker) brown foamy head on top.
Aromas of liquorice, roast, marzepin, some chocolate.
Flavours of roast, coffee, bitters, roasted/burned barley malts as grainy plants, some dark chocolate, light spicy, marzepin, hint of marshmellow.
Aftertaste is nice bitter with roast, floral and grass tones and some wood burn.
Low to medium carbo, soft creamy lightly blown mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.
Good beer considering the alcohol percentage.
But this beer is insane and still i give it a 3.9 oh silly me, or not.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours black with a tiny chocolate coloured head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and marzipan. The taste is all right, but nothing special. Wish it was a little more complex and richer.
