Bottle thanks to Father. Aroma is minimal, roasty small sweet malt notes. Taste is sweet roasty malts, notes of caramel perhaps buttery hints, there are hops in here but hard to tell what they’re doing. A decent stout.

0.5 l bottle. Dark ruby color with creamy tan head. Soft roasty aroma with notes of coffee, caramel and fruity esters. Ligth bodied and dry palate with coffee, toffee, caramel and charcoal in the finish. Pretty tame and simple stout.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 50cl. Pours black, with a generous and long lasting head. Very subtle aroma of roasted malt with notes of caramel and chocolate. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, can’t decide yet.. It’s somewhere there in the middle. Sweet and roasted flavour with some chocolate, caramel. Pretty nice with strong flavoured cheese.

Tap @ Chr. 4, Odense.
[shared with ChristianScheffel, good to see you up and ’running’ again!]
Pours a deep dark red, with a stunning looking creamy beige head. Good duration. Aroma is mildly buttery, chocolate, roasted malts and caramel. Low carbonation and a little thin. Sweet flavour, lightly roasted with some sweet caramel. Nice sweet/dry aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thick, dark head tops the dark brown-black body. Fairly weak aroma with a hint of roasted malt, not much more. Body is quite thin which is disappointing. Flavour is dry and bitter. Not much malt present. Other flavours struggle to break through. An ok beer but I hoped for more having enjoyed this on cask many years ago.
