3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Getting this rating took some time. I bought a partyfass at the brewpub in February to share with the Copenhagen crew, but when the brewmaster realized, that the bar had sold it inspite of her not wanting to sell more of that batch due to a slight acidity, she kindly asked me not to rate it and would supply me with a new partyfass when the next brew was released. So I got it on Wednesday before Easter and opened it to celebrate Joris’ blitz into Copenhagen on Easter Sunday. I like this kind of obsession with giving the customers the right experience of the beer. Some Danish microbrewers can learn from this example!
So how was it: The color is deep red and it has a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of roasted malts, but also with a light touch of chocolate. The flavor is lovely sweet and at the same time roasted and dry with nice notes of chocolate. The end is dry and the roastyness lingers around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Brownish head over dark red-brown beer. Fruity nose with dark fruit (as plums and dark - apricot?) and some dark malts - and some, sorry, good-roasted eggplant! Smoked taste, cigarette ash standing perpendicular on the nose. Bitter, and even hops and some dry wood. Medium bodied. Wood in the aftertaste makes it dry-severe. It loses a point on its unbalance nose-taste. But it is not a bad beer. Again absurd thanks to the Danish crew for a second Partyfass opened in less than ten minutes!
