3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Løgismose, Cph.
Pours almost black; only some slight brown edges. A great, large, creamy, cappucino head. Aroma is sweet, some Belgian sugars, lots of roasted malts and chocolate. A light ashy note as well. Medium, pcrickly carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, some caramel and milky chocolate. But the finish is really nice, lots of darker chocolate, roasted malts and a long, lingering dry note with fresh ground coffee. Very nice.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black-colored with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, a bit of licorice notes and faint alcohol note. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee, some dark chocolate and a slightly bitter and slightly burnt finish. Medium-bodied. Nice, kind of a Stout-ish Schwarzbier.

The aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and malt, along with some hops in the background. Medium body with a strong roasted coffee character and notes of sweet malt, hops and a touch of anise. The finish is brown sugar and coffee. Pretty good all around.
