thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a medium, light fizzy, off-white frothy head. Aroma has great malty character. Milky chocolate, soft liqourice, slight bit of toasted caramel. Hops are mild grassy and there is a soft black currant note to it. Highish carbonation, fine grainy creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly sweet, caramel and milky chocolate dominate. Light salty liqourice as well. Not the longest finish, but otherwise a very solid beer.
