3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 On tap@Jazzcup Copenhagen. Dark brown, almost black, with light brown head. Aroma of roast malt. Taste of even more roasted malt in a very agreeable way. Tones of liqourice, bread and subdued hop. Not sweet like other dark beers and with a nice bitterness in the aftertaste...again dominated by perfectly roasted malt. Dark beers are not normally my favourite, but I like this one. Has traits of porter, yet it is clearly a schwarzbier.
