2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not the best hybrid, then it’s better to mix an IPA with a stout. It lacks hop!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A black stout with thick light brown and persistent foam. It smells not as much as other stouts, but you may feel a little hops and coffee in the aroma.
The taste initially providing a thick creamy mouthfeeling where the taste of licorice enters the cocoa to a somewhat bitter taste of coffee. There also occurs a short-lasting flavor of hop. It is undoubtedly good for a cold winter evening, but is a bit too heavy for my taste buds. I think there is too much cold coffee in it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours almost black red shining through, and a small beige head. Not much aroma to speak of other than a faint roastiness. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee with a hint of licorice. Very schwarzbier-ish. Slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Close to black body with a large, creamy, light-brown head that laces the glass somewhat. Coffee and roasted notes in the aroma, but also some unpleasant, sour and partially rotten vegetable and fruity notes. Moderate sweet, light sour and moderate bitter taste. Unpleasant flavours of stinging alcohol, rotten fruits and berries and roasted notes. I managed half a glass before the rest went into the sink. The second infected Holbæk beer I’ve had in two days.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 13 months before BB date, from SuperBrugsen Nykøbing Sj., Denmark]

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Copenhagen Oldage on 20 May 2006 (noted at 6.0%). Very dark colour with a lasting tan head. Roasty, with a touch of butterscotch in the aroma. Some coffee on the palate. Decent enough but a bit too sweet for my taste. I thought the mouthfeel was a little thin for a stout but now I see it’s meant as a stout/Schwarzbier hybrid I guess that’s understandable.
