from Erzbierschof - black beer with a rather poor beige foam left; aroma of black chocolate with some coriander on top of it; pretty sweet; full-bodied; a light earthy tartness, residual sweetness with hints of candi sugar and chocolate; some lingering sharpness - not really convincing

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Dark reddish Brown coloured. Dense light Brown head. Aroma. Caramel, sweetness, Brown sugar, Spice, plums, prunes, light alcohol. Flavour. Sweetness, coriander, light vanilla, roast, caramel, ripe fruits. Definite portwine character. Medium to full bodied. Ends sweet anf fruity with a light Spicy touch. Delicious, but The reel question is. Is it really necessary with all these Indian Spices in a Danish beer?. Why not use the traditional danish Spices like liqourice, orangepeel, cloves and cinnamon.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From tap at The Bishop Arms in Copenhagen. Small glass served at the right drinking temperature. Coal black body with a dark red shade. Low head, dotted spots to the glassware. Dark malty aromas joined by a nice touch of Christmas spices. Rich Yuletide taste of anise, coffee, and chocolate on a moderate roasted backbone. Long bittersweet tail tingled with alcohol warmth. Great stuff that fits the holiday season. Enjoyed in a relaxing atmosphere. I’ve always liked visiting this place and even placed one of my books in their library. Thanks (Copenhagen 09.12.2013).
