3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with next to no head only a rim of brown head next to the glass. The aroma is sweet and very roasted combined with notes of soy sauce, alcohol, wood, and dark bitter chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of hard roasted malt, chocolate, wood, leather, and caramel, leading to a dry and very bitter finish with notes of chocolate lingering.. The body is a bit thin inspite of the 7.3% ABV. Work on the head retention and body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As Thorups Herrebryg Stout, at Thorups Kælder, Århus
Black color; generous creamy head. The aroma mixes heavily roasted malts and evident liquorice, lightly creamy and buttery. Correct body strength; mild roasted malt flavor, dryish, with strong liquorice; correct bitterness too, but in the final the liquorice is even stronger.
It plays with elements that I don’t fancy, so I’m not overly excited, nevertheless is correctly brewed.
