3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown to black body with a fluffy head that lasts through the first few sips. The aroma has a bread and caramel quality. The taste is light, faintly bitter, with a slight metallic bit toward the middle. There is some cereal and a bit of roast in the finish. It’s easy to drink and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
