Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Bottle at Cafe Biografen. Dark brown with a lasting light brown head. Malty aroma with caramel and licorice notes, spice and fruit, a little alcohol and a touch of green apples. Sweetish malty flavour with fruit, molasses, caramel, spice and alcohol. 3.6.

On tap several times at Christian Firtal and Carlsens Kvarter: No sign of the green apple notes. Very subdued alcohol. More chocolate character. Much better. Another bottle in February 2013 was still problematic
