3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
200ml on tap at Mikkeller & Friends. Good lacing from a fragile tan-coloured head. Pitch black, more or less. Nose of sweet chocolate and grassy hops. Coffee to the fore added by taste of vanilla and chocolate. Long-lived finish of roasted malts. Well bodied and well balanced. Enjoying (Copenhagen, 22.05.2013).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge greige head, leaving textbook lace over virtually black beer. Hops! Fragrant oily hops, green, cypress aroma. There might be some coffee behind them, but it is completely subdued by the hops. Coffee is there in the mouth, though the hops are far from beaten. Finish is pure roastiness, but the resiny dryness of the hopoils lets itself known throughout. Certain sweetness overall, as café noir cookies, but with alpha-acids. Touch of sparadrap. Very thick, onctuous, but also slightly burning MF, faint astringency. Original in its precarious coffee-hops balance.
