[on tap at EBF 2008] Roasted barley bubblegum aroma with, surprisingly, a lot of US hops, though a touch weak aroma overall. Opaque black with good lacing, khaki cover. Quite hoppy flavour with surprisingly low dark malt contributions. Sour and warm dark Schwarzbier-like malt character. A bit weak. Sweet hops *feel* but low flavour. Moderate ethanol, smoke, and nut flavours as well. Medium body, warming, almost clean finish. Moderate carbonation.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2008
EBF2008. It’s pitch black with a creamy head. The aroma is surprisingly strong and pleasantly hoppy and I also find notes of roasted malt. The flavour has a great hoppyness and a nice bitterness, notes of roasted malt, bitter licorice, coffee and caramel. It’s very nice indeed.

Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours completely black with a small, creamy, off-white/beige head. Aroma is roasted, lightly smoky and well roasted. Very nice, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour feels just a bit sharp with just a tad too much smoke between chocolate and roasty malts. Some tobacco notes in the finish.
