Bottle provided by Sigmund, thanks. Pours almost pitch black with a very small tanned head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, liquorice and a small whiff of smoke. Taste is moderate sweet light roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, and that lovely weak smoked thing is also noticeable, also some umami and salty stuff. Sticky mouthfeel, splendid beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle, batch 22, from Voldby Købmandsgård. ABV is 8.0%. Pitch black colour, big to moderate tan head. Moderate but nice aroma of roasted malts, notes of coffee, hints of liquorice and smoke. Full and rich mouthfeel. The flavour is fairly sweet and malty, roasty notes of course, some caramel, tar, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and smoke again - but not quite as much peat smoke as expected, and that’s quite alright with me. A lovely drop!
