3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Deep nut-brown with a fine, staying, frothy, beige head. Dark caramel aroma, some sweet milky chocolate, mild roasted, some fruity hops, some fruity blackberry. Medium carbonation, lovely malty dry and quite creamy palate. Flavour is elegant, mild metallic tartness at first, then fat roasty maltiness, coffee, pine. Long, lingering, seriously dry malty finish. Extremely good for a schwarzbier.
