3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Cph.
Pours deep brown chestnut with a small, beige film head. Heavy meaty smoke aroma, some chocolate, caramel and roasted notes attempt to create balance. Lowish carbonation, great dry and rather creamy palate. Flavour is quite lovely, still lots of smoke, but a fine and rather astringent roasted malts note does create some balance. Some chocolate, rather grainy, malty dry bitterness. Yum.
