250ml, tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Pitch black body with ring-like lacing to the glass. Not so prominent smell of roasted coffee. Integrated taste of dry fruits and chocolate followed by bitter coffee grounds. The alcohol is very well hidden. Nice, rather sweet, though (Copenhagen, 06.11.2010).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours black with a vague orange hue and a beige head. The nose has hard roasted malt, licorice and sweet coffee. Quite full-bodied, flavours very much the same as in the nose: sweet coffee, licorice and perhaps some dried fruit. A little sticky perhaps while the finish is only subdued in its bitterness. 091110
