Danish: Denne natsorte øl er husets specialitet. Typemæssigt smager den som en blanding af stout og schwarzbier. Den mørke, ristede malt tilfører øllet en karakteristisk smag med noter af kaffe og mørk chokolade. Den har tydelig “mørk” smag, men er alligevel let og forfriskende.

English: This pitch black beer is the house speciality. The style is a hybrid between a stout and a schwarzbier. The dark roasted malts adds a characteristic flavour with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. It has a distinct ’dark’ flavor, yet it is still light and refreshing.

Bottle thanks to myrup. Pours a reddish black with a medium, clingy beige head. Aroma is roasted and has lots of chocoalte as well as a fruity feel. Well carbonated. Begins on a quite sour edge, filling up your mouth. Then a roastedness comes through. Aftertaste has loads of chocolate. Nice, but a touch special.

Draught. Nice black colour. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavour is smooth and creamy, nice roasty maltiness, chocolate, good coffee. Bit thin for its style though. Taste like a mix between a creamy stout and a good schwartzbier.

Draught@Københavnske Øldage. Loads of sweet butterscotch and caramel, too much. Not very pleasant at all.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2006
On tap at Cph Beerfestival. Almost black, with a beige head. Served too cold. Quite roasted aroma, with some dark, bitter chocolate in it. Roasted, sour, dryish aroma with some chocolate and cocoa. Thin body and a dry, bitter and sour finish. Could use some more hops, I think. (060519)
