3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Dark brown color with mahogany shades. Very dark color, with mahogany/red shades, and a beautiful necklace. The aroma is immediately cheesy and yeasty, not what expected, but appreciated somehow. Chocolate flavor, with some sweetness, and a very strong yeast presence (less interesting here than the aroma); bold bitterness; the alcohol warmth is perceived more than expected.

Tap sample. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, nuts aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew.
