3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika some years ago. Pours pitch black with a large, brown head. Solid roasty aroma with still a lot of hops, dark fruits, dark chocolate, licorice, herbs and hints of coffee and citrus. Sweet and high flavour intensity and still quite bitter. Feels somewhat balanced, and certainly interesting. Never got around to try this one fresh, but it still feels really hoppy. Certainly a nice one!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a shop in Copenhagen (forgot which one). It has a bit unclean smell with some fenolic character, but also some roasted aromas. Similar taste. I have a feeling I had this too long in my cellar. I thought it was an Imperial Porter until I read the deScription.

On tap at Crowbar. Chocolate, coffe and liquorice, in the aroma and in the flaor, and it all blends very well together. No real wow factor, though, but well crafted.
