4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A dense, two-finger dark beige head sits on top of a black-looking body. Cute. Leaves lacings too. It’s really pleasant on the nose, with mocha, a touch of dark chocolate and caramel, some roasted malts and even more coffee. It’s a bit thin on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Full body. Chocolate and coffee in the flavor too, but not as intense and pleasant as the aroma. Nice anyway. Lasting finish with a faint touch of grass. Well, this must be the best I’ve ever had from Ørbæk. Especially the aroma is nice. 131231

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ ZZT 8 shared by Joes. Dark brown color with a red glare coming through, small beige head. Aroma is heavy chocolate, heavy cocoa. Tastes the same: thick, heavy almost harsh chocolate and cocoa. A bit too much chocolate, not enough roasted malts. But I can see why people might like this.
