3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 750ml (bought from Mikkeller&Friends, AIH40)
Opaque black color, good cloudy brownish head. Aroma has coffee and some licorice. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Probably mellowed with the age. Flavor is dominated by coffee, lingering harsh bitterness in the aftertaste although otherwise plesant mouthfeel. Leading a bit empty finish. I remember the original version for being better.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good beer and old football games with Mads. Wild gusher - I should downrate this for ruining my carpet... black with a big, but disappearing tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and dried fruit. Sweetish dark flavour or coffee and chocolate with plenty of hop character and a touch of typical Anchorage funk.
