Vestergaard (948) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours black with a huge, dense, nut brown head. Aroma is full of chocolate, wood, dry roast. Fairly bitter. Taste has the same brownie-like chocolate which is very dry and dark. Lots of wood here as well. A nice sweetness in the back. The body is rather nice, but it sure could use some more alcohol in my opinion. Medium carb. Nice and good looking, but seems a little expensive.

Klimaet (755) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours black with a medium brown mocca head. Aromas of slight smoke, slight rum, coconut, dark chocolate, burned coffee. Taste is slighty smokey and roasted with some coconut and has alot of fruity sweetness to it. Ends in a dry, smoked and woody taste with some of that before said sweetness to it. Some bitter cacao aswell.

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Tap at CBC Brixton 09/06/14 (...and a Bottle at home.). Tap - Pours deep dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was slight herby, grassy, leafy with a slight medicinal edge. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light stickiness. A light herby, green grassy thing to start then a dark choc coffee with more dark choc and espresso bitterness to finish. I found the bottled version to be that bit richer, smoother and fuller bodied. Both were tasty, though.

Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Palate is slightly soft and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts including the chocolate cake. Trace of spice and a little coconut. Light dry finish. Nice beer but the flavours seem less vibrant then it’s cask sibling.
