UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 6th May 2010.
On tap at the Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen. Opaque black beer, dark brown head. Minerally nose with a bit of wet straw. Palate starts crisp but rapidly turns soft. Rich dark malt, minerally and fresh. A little coffee and some underlying red fruit. Finishes dry and rich. Nice but might have suffered a bit after tasting Heavy Black as the previous beer! 3.4

13th December 2010
Bottle. Opaque black beer, small chocolate coloured head. Softish semi dry palate. Now this is a RIS! Rich unsweet dark chocolate and malt with some coffee. A little cherry and red fruit underneath. Has a little aniseed and a trace of minerals in the soft semi dry finish. Slight roastiness in the aftertaste. Rich and tasty!
