3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 On tap at Cph Beerfestival. Almost black, with some reddish notes, and it seems clear. Tan head. It has a slightly roasted aroma with some fruitiness, coffee and chocolate. Coffee and chocolate in the flavor too, and it is quite sweet. A bit roasted too. Dry bittersweet finish, and full-bodied. A pleasant beer, but a bit on the sweet side. Rating: 7-5-7-4-14-3.7. (060519)
Rerate: Bottle. Dark brown pour, with a reddish hue, and a nice, but not lasting, beige head. No sediments, but clear. The aroma starts roasted and burnt, with chocolate, coffee and some dried fruits. The same things are found in the flavor, which has a sourness, some bitterness, and a touch of smoke. Cigarette smoke I think. There’s also some licorice, but mostly in the finish, where it has company by a dry, coffee-ish bitterness and roasted malt. The mouthfeel is medium to full, leaving it quite easy to drink. Still nice, but adjusted the score down by 0.1 due to the diminishing head. The sweetness from last sample were not as evident in this one. (071107)
