StoutHead (715) - DENMARK - NOV 5, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller. Pours black with a small tan head. Faint aroma of coffee but not much else. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, some hops and citrus-like notes. Above-medium body and average carbonation. Slightly sweet with a dry finish. Not bad - tasty but not too complex...and not fantastic either. Would happily drink again but not one I will remember having in the first place. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
