Draught @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated on 13.04.2011
Aroma is rather roasted with coffee, some chocolate and hints of peat. Flavour is very roasted too. It has coffee, chocolate, some peat and hints if licorice. Feels a bit too dry though and has harsh bitterness in the aftertaste. Good stuff still.

Fad: Sortbrun øl hvor der kan skimtes lidt lys igennem. Duften er let ristet og meget mokka, hvilket tyder godt for smagen, som da også sidder lige i skabet. Masser af kaffe med en behagelig humling der gør at den søde kaffe ikke bliver for meget. Meget let ristet.

Keg at Craft. Black with small beige head. Aroma is very much coffee, dark malts, oaty and boozy. Taste a a touch bitter and has a little bit of coffee liqueur about it with milky/creamy coffee elements too. Has a nice liveliness in the mouth, and a lovely bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ BQ, Milano. Somewhat surprising to find in Milano, served from hand-pump no less. Pitch black with a small brown-ish head, leaving a very nice lacing. The nose has a lot of roasted malts, some licorice, but not very much hops. Slick mouth-feel (hello oats) with small carbonation. Taste has some coffee, some background chocolate, a some light sweetness. Nicely balanced if rather dry. There’s also an almost sour tinge I couldn’t really pin down. But all in all, and nice one.
