2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle, at Den Gamle Grænsekro, Frederikshøj in Christiansfeld. ABV was 5.0%. Yes, one day after the disappointing Kolding Gylden, I braced myself for the Mørk. And while the Gylden was clearly overcarbonated, the Mørk was rather the opposite - but not totally flat. Dark brown colour, small head that died out instantly. Moderate aroma, some yeast and mildly roasted malts. The flavour had some more yeast than desirable, but not nearly as bad as the Gylden. Also nicer hints of chocolate, mild coffee and liquorice, but not sweet. Not too bad.
