On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Looking at the beer, it’s very promising, the first sniff makes me even more hopeful, and when I finally taste it, I’m completely lost. First of all, it looks gorgeous, jet black and with a finger-thick tan head. The aroma is wonderful, but not superb, with lots of coffee and chocolate, some spiced hints and roasted malts. Maybe a faint hint of prunes in the back. The flavor takes me to heaven, it’s so complex and wonderful, with lots of delicious coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. A nice chili flavor blends in, giving a certain warmth in the mouth, coming stronger after a while, but never at too high levels. There’s also dried fruits and cola in the flavor, but not much. It’s full-bodied and warming in the palate, finishing with lots of dark flavors and a pleasant chili burn. Damn, damn, damn, this was just f’in wonderful. Best beer on the festival I say. 120511
