3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) at 8.9%
Black. Mjs has a nice tan head but I don’t. Sightly stale roasty aroma, but promises good things so I like it. Slightly smokey palate, some nice sweet esters aided up the nose by a bit of alcohol. Great rich roast, no astringency, sweet and cakey, even a bit of coconut frosting. Sweet ans smooth, even keggy carbonation can’t cut through the smoothness. cakeyness high. alcohol restrained. like it.

Helt sort med et kremet lysebrunt skum, skummet hang fint i glassveggen. Aroma av røstet malt, mørk frukt, kaffe, sjokolade og hint av lakris. Smaken følger aroma, men hadde ventet noe mer fylde. Ettersmaken varer en kort stund

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival. This had an acidic touch that i usually appreciate but that in this case just didn’t work out.
