On tap at POPE by accident (bartender gave me the wrong Bender). Aroma of malt malty malt, some nut, bread, and chocolate. Pours nut brown and hazy with a small fluffy head. Taste was nice and malty with chocolate, malt, and slight bread crust. Warm thick mouthfeel but it goes down like butter. This is an amazingly perfect brown ale. I was impressed.

Un corps svelte peuplé de malts rôtis et chocolatés qui se laissent dominer par un tranchant lactique en finale.

Can from a bottle shop in Copenhagen (probably Mikkeller & friends). Hoppy malty with caramel and dark bread. Similar taste. Nice hoppy brown ale although i recon the hop is a bit subdued now.

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.
