Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Dark brown almost black, nice foamy brown head that doesn’t last long. Very roasted malt aroma, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Sweet and roasted malt taste,coffee,caramel and chocolate. A warming light alcoholic burn as you shallow makes you aware of it’s high ABv, but I would have never guessed 18% as it is very well hidden, nice one !

Alcohol roasted malts and dark fruits. Some licorice. Black, some brown edges. Surprisingly night tan head. Alcohol taste, faint chocolate and roasted notes. Not very dynamic. Carbonation is stingy. Too crisp.
