3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 31/1 2015. 33 cl bottle from Rema 1000. Pours black with big dark beige head. Slowly subsiding. Aroma is sweetish - chocolate, nuts and a little coffee. Medium carbonation. Taste is bittersweet. Actually rather more bitter than sweet. The pronounced taste hides the high alcohol content quite well. Ok - but a bit one-dimensional.

En dejlig fyldig øl, som smager lidt sødere og bedre end mange andre portere.
