UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011
2010-08-21, bottle, 7.5% ABV, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Black color; small head. Chocolate brew, bit the light sourness that is usually associated to Old Ales; the aroma is mild; the flavor is just better; but tasted just after the Fusion it’s not as good.

2009-10-09, draught at Ørsted, Copenhagen, 7.3% ABV, 6-3-7-3-13=32
Black color. The body is weaker than the alcohol may suggest. There is some caramel and chocolate flavor, light residual sweetness, but also a yeast presence, both the aroma and flavor. Nothing special.
