thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 29, 2008
Tap @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph.
Pours deep black with red edges. Fine creamy beige-white head. Aroma is lightly roasted, some crystal maltiness and brewing cereal. Low carbonation, still a bit thin. Flavour starts off quite unimpressive and thin with a bit of lightly roasted maltiness and sweetness. The aftertaste is very nice though, and saves this beer some of the way. Wonderful dry chocolate in this finish.
