Not the best hybrid, then it’s better to mix an IPA with a stout. It lacks hop!

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.
