Keg at the 4th Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Session 4, 02/05/2015.
Black with a dirty tan swirl.
Nose is rich roast, chocolate, vanilla, toffee fudge, bourbon tunes.
Taste comprises rich dark fruit, vanilla essence, sweet licks, muscavado sugar, chocolate souffle, sherry notes, bourbon barrel.
Medium + body, oily complection, sweet close.
Decent enough impy but as with other DL’s to sweet for me, needs some more bitterness/charring to balance out.
