2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours completely black with a small, brown, film head. Aroma is sweet, has coffee and wood, lightly tart fruit and quite vinious. Okay mouthfeel, just a tad too high in carbonation, never letting the beer settle well. Flavour is weird, sweet, some saltiness and very medicinic wood. Not very good - incredibly unbalanced.

Sampled at EBF2008. Pours a black beer with a lightbrown head. The aroma is coffee and chocolate with some vanilla and acidity from the barrelaging. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, licorice and coffee. Has a little bitterness in the aftertaste, and gives a beer above average.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Draught at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Very black. Intense aroma of vanilla, menthe and tar. Sweet and compact. Powerful and woody with tocbacco and tar in sugar. Thanks to excellent well structured soft malt the inetnse sweetness doesn’t go overboard. A really complex mega-beer that works very well.
