2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copenhagen 29/1 2015. 50 cl bottle from Fakta. Bought under the name "Dark Horse". Horsey silhouette on the label. Pours hazy dark reddish brown with off-white head. Head disappears completely leaving flimsy patches of foam. Aroma is sweet and buttery. Caramel and a little roasted malts. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is roasted malts, harsh butter with sugary notes. Aftertaste is bitter in a harsh kind of way. Not an especially pleasant experience. Too much butter and sugar for me.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is very composed of the dark malts and has a subtle aroma of bitter chocolate. Tastes quite sweet compared to other Dunkel, but still in a balanced manner in which flavors like coffee and licorice come to terms with the aforementioned bitter chocolate. Malt helps to give it a full body and there is a comfortable and long-lasting hop bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fuck the man I’m drinking this from the bottle. Bitter sour chalky coffee sweetness. Roasted malts almost a toffee. Flavorless hops with a coffee like bitter lingering after each sip. Way smoother then I thought it would be. I’m enjoying this more then I though I would. For such a boring style this is ok to drink. Starting to turn into a cold cup of coffee. This gets a MEH+

Svart aroma av kaffe, sorte oliven og karamell. Middels lett fylde, fin friskhet og lett sødme. God øl, i en litt merkelig stil.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep dark color with a fine off white head. Mostly a bit sweet toffee aroma with some roasted notes. Medium body. A bit unbalanced over to the swet side. Average carbonation. Toffee, some coffee and mild fruity flavor. A bit to sweet, but still easy drinkable.
