Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2013
Draught @ Churchkey, Wash., D.C. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small, airy tan head. Dark, grainy and malty aroma with touches of caramel. Mild, subtle bitter flavour of grain and roast. Very subtle caramel touches. Nearly no carbonation. OK but nothing that would sweep me off my feet.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a watery but opaque black with some tan head. Nose has some chocolate, some bread, cracker, stale coffee, molasses. Flavor is nice, lighter than I thought it would be, mild sweetness, dry toasted bread, molasses. Dry finish.

BVery (6128) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a clingy off white head. Roasty and soy elements, not as smooth as I’d like but not bad.
