Phictor (11) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2012
Cask (gravity) at The Wharf, the very same beer Phredrik rated. Nice appearance, almost pitchblack with light bubbly foam. The aroma is nice and roasted with coffee notes and, as it developed in the glass, more and more chocolate. The taste is roasted, a bit of coffee and, as the aroma develops into complex notes of chocolate. Taste is better than the mouth-feel which is a bit thin though it’s nocely carbonated.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 24, 2012
Cask (gravity) at The Wharf. Aroma is very pleasant, lots of coffee, amaretto, dark burned caramel, chocolate, a bit of hoppiness, fudge. Awesome aroma, lots of toffee. Taste tends more towards the roasted spectrum, adding liquorice root and an ashy touch. Still (but not quite as) lovely. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Very nice stout.
