Opaque black - brown beer, little pale tan head. Smooth softish palate, a little dry with fine carbonation. Spirity dark malt.. no roast or bitterness. A little dark chocolate and dark fruits. Not really getting the spices. Dry finish with mild wood. Okay but could do with a little aging.

Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Dark color, almost black; small creamy beige head. Delicate aroma of roasted malts, light dark chocolate too. Smooth mouthfeel; caramel and mild chocolate flavor (not the nice dark chocolate), traces of vanilla and in the final hints of liquorice.
Balanced but confusing.
