3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice looking beer. Dark dark brown. Big frothy creamy light brown head. An interesting kind of bitter. Very drinkable. Not as bold as I would expect. A good body though. Feels good. An almost grassy sort of bitterness, but not quite. A pleasant roastiness. Lighter chocolate. Good balance. Not too aromatic.

Sample @ CBC 14. Pours a very dark, blackish beer with a big creamy tanned on top. Aroma is rather hoppy, grapefruit and licorice. Flavor is bittersweet, best of two worlds. Very nice balance between hops and malts. Joyful drinking experience.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade pre-CBC. I can’t believe it’s not a ’coffee-added’-stout, this literally reeks of cold-press coffee. Some vanilla and chocolate (dark) aswell.
