2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown pour with tan head. Inital aroma is a mixture of babypowder and coca beans. Don’t know if that is an off-taste or not. Texture is oily, while body is medium. Taste is like a quality coffee stout, but withhout the stamina.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great looking, which matches with the quality of the beer. Aromas combine to the perfection the coffee-ish and smoky notes from the roasted malts and the hoppy traces. The mouthfeel is inclined to the hops, creating a very well balanced beer, robust but elegant. A prodigy of balance, an excellent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. BB 09/07/2014. From bierkompass.de.
Black colour with a small tan head.
Sourness, ash, roasted malt and some hoppy bitterness in the aroma.
Hoppy bitterness, roasted malt and ashy notes in a strong and harsh flavour. This more like well hopped Imperial Stout and a real Black IPA. Rather tasty though.

500ml bottle @ cabin. Ordered from Bierzwerg. Nice surprice, I remembered that this was normal Indian Pale Ale. When pouring to glass, thought that pretty black colour ;-) I havent tasted any bad beer from Midtfyns.. This is also very good. Not too ’burned’.
