Bottle @ Kolding Bryglaug Americans tasting.
Bought @ Det Lille Ølhus, Ribe.
Pours deep mahogany, nearing opaque black. A great, creamy, beige head with fine lacing. Aroma is soft coffee and a touch of chocolate. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Flavour is light coffee-based at first, then dries out considerably adding lots of dry mocha coffee notes and light hops. Sadly a bit too thin.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost black, the head is mocca, creamy and nice, and it leaves a thick lace. The aroma has wonderful mocca notes. The mouthfeel is average and the flavour has at lot of mocca, sweet coffee and hoppy notes. It might have a bit more complexity, but I suspect that the real problem is, that I love Rogue so much, that I get greedy and simply want more and everything in all their beers... The finish is extremely long, and it has a nice bitterness and a lot of flavour in spite of the only 5,1%. A very worthy beer as my personal rating # 1800.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, and perhaps coffee. Opaque brown/black color with ruby hilites on the edges. A beige head stays. A bit thin in body; moderate, almost creamy carbonation. The flavor starts with roasted malt, accompanied by significant bitter. There are notes of chocolate and coffee. The finish is very dry, bitter, and has remnants of burnt toast and baking chocolate. A very subtle sour touch comes and goes.
