Cask and draft tasted side by side at BikeBar, courtesy of staff - thanks! Aroma of chocolate !! and burnt espresso. Taste is like strong coffee. Low carbonation. Needs more body. Not a great cask choice, and served too cold. But overall, OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting at Papsø
Black color; generous creamy head. Dusty aroma, cardboard. The coffee aroma here is not too bad (compared to other coffee beers). Dry mouthfeel, a bit creamy (which is a positive thing in this kind of beers), strong roasted malt flavor, coffeish. Correct bitterness. Well balanced, even if not a good style for me.
