3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Dark reddish brown shade with a ring of head. First thing I pick up is the hops. Kind of earthy, spicy and fruity, maybe English hops? Malt backbone is a little smoky. Clearly a fruity red grape-like influence too. Very different to what I expected, but nice once I got used to it.
