It has almost no foam and only slightly aroma of coffee. Not coffee smell familiar from freshly made coffee, but rather as interfering in a used coffee filter where unusually cheap and blend coffee has been used. The taste has a little character of roasted malt with those boring coffee notes as superstructure. In conclusion, the diluted and very anonymous. Wobble to the glass a little can provoke a decent foam, but it does not last long and only makes the appearance of this stout a service. In general, the very dull, and even a temperature increase helps it does not to any significant extent.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass. According to the website: "a vibrant Irish stout based upon original recipes developed within the heart of this Celtic island". POurs a dark black colour with a white head that disappears quick but leaves traces. Smells lovely and rich, dark and malty. Hints of coffee there too. Tastes quite watery in texture, but good. It’s dry and sharp with a hop bitterness on the finish, but from the start to the middle it’s balanced and smoothly malty. Overall a lovely beer, odd to have in a 330ml bottle because it seems quite quaffable.

Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Dark brown colour with beige head. Somewhate bitter flavour with a hint of liquorice. The nice coffee and chocolate aroma unfortunately are downsized in the flavour.

A surprising amount of flavor for such a low alcohol percentage. Roasted flavors and good bitterness. Dark brown in color with a white head.

humlelala (1307) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2012
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 (33 cl bottle @ Nyborg Strand; BBD: January 2013) Pours a clear, dark brown with little, white head that dissipates quickly and some lace. Served slightly too cold but was handwarmed gradually in the glass. Aroma is a relatively faint, roasted malt. Watery texture, light body with soft carbonation and a slightly bitter finish. Flavour is a mildly roasted and slightly dry bitterness with a little malt for balance. Light and sessionable but probably better suited for a Welch autumn than a Danish spring.
