En god øl. Kaffen er meget markant, men heldigvis god kaffe. Både malt og humle er fremtrædende. En aroma af kaffe, lakrids, vanilje, mørk chokolade, tørret frugt. En godt humlet porter.

Drucken på ölmässan, Stockholm. Rolig tanke men blir inte alls bra i praktiken. Besviken på det mesta här förutom alkoholstyrkan som tyvärr känns.

Tap@ølhus cph. Black, creamy head. Soft roasty, light leathery, dry chocolate, malty sweet vanilla nose. Full supersmooth soft body. Very nice mouthfeel. Soft, creamy, slight sweet roasty. No sign, at all, of the abv. Just malty creamy smoothness. Best stuff I’ve had in a while (since last sun, to be exact..)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a small frothy brown head, light persistence, lots of lacing. Some yeast pellet in the bottom of the glass. Nose of roasted malts, in the mouth likewise, with alcohol, caramel, light coffee, fruits, some vanilla, and some oak barrel smoothness. The taste is very smooth, medium sweet and medium to light bitter. Rather light bodied surprisingly watery. Nice, and easy going, but not quite as "big and bold" as promised, although the smoothness is definitely there.

Backlog. Pours deep brown, almost black, with a two finger beige semi compact foam that dissipates slow and leaves no lacings. Aroma is dominated by coffee, roasted mocca beans, malt, slight liquorice. Taste is moderately bitter and sweet with roasted malt and coffee tones, chocolate, along with a slight hint of vanilla, and a tiny smokey hint. Big body, low to medium carbo, fairly light texture for such big body. Quite good, very coffee dominated.

Flaske 330 ml. Ser flot ud i glasset, sort med brunt beige farvet skum, som ligger i en god rums tid, dejlig mild aroma af blandt andet kaffe, vanilje og likør/ chokolade. Smagen minder om duften og er bare rigtig god ligesom konsistensen også er i top.
