3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a nice tan coloured head that leaves chunky lacing. Nose has alot of mild roasted matl, bringing choc and coffee as well as some nuttiness and a touch of vanilla. Palate translates well, dark malt dominating but by no means is this a robust beer. Some slight bitterness on the finish. At 4.5%abv a great winter session beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent brown beer. Dark brown color with small off white head. The flavor is a little off. A little metallic. Medium body with some caramel. Just could not get the odd metal taste out of my mind.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown, almost black colour
On the nose Im getting mocca-chocolate cake with hints of fruit inbetween.
Good foam, and it follows the coffeearomas in the mouth. Good bitternes, but I do miss a hint of sweetnes.
It do lacks some body. Too bad.
Good beer none the less

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pour was slight brown with a medium tan head. I took several whiffs of this and have little to say along the lines of smell. I got very very subtle notes of an earthy type smell, with maybe some dark fruit and hoppiness, but again, subtle at best. The taste was no different. I had a har time figuring out what flavors I was tasting because there was no taste there. As I continued to drink this beer, in became incredibly dry, which brought forth the missing flavor. I noted some nuttiness. Frankly, I was dissappointed. The only positive I can say here is that it’s easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass.
Deeply brown. Moderate, tan head, which gradually fades. The aroma is pleasantly, darkly malty. Harmonious. The taste is well-balanced, malty (roasted) and pleasant. The finish is a bit weak, though, and the mouthfeel gets a bit watery as the head disappears.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown color, with hints of deep red. No head and very little in the way of carbonation out of my bottle. Aroma is nutty, with hints of smoke and coffee. Flavor tastes nicely of toasted malts, and likewise has a hint of smoke. Finish is pleasantly hoppy, and leaves you wanting another taste. Very nice ale.
