3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pitch black body, medium beige head. Nose is subtle coffee tones, chocolate and hints of dark fruits. Taste is sweet dried fruits, dark chocolate, hints of ashes, black currants and alcohol. Seemed a bit raw to me at the time. Smooth and velvety palate with just the right amount of carbonation. A fine ale, though perhaps not as much in my book as here on Ratebeer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Completely black pour with a lovely, small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is roasted, liqourice, coffee, light chocolate and good, fresh orange-peel. Medium carbonation, nice light and dry mouthfeel. Quite creamy as well. Flavour is elegantly balanced, freshness from the oranges coupled nicely with charry roasted malts and coffee. Lingering malty bitter finish. Super drinkable.
