Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy but stable tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and roast. Sweetish, malty flavour with pronounced notes of roast, dark chocolate and caramel. A hint of liquorice in the bitter, roasty aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle. Pitch black color. Dense brown head with good retention. Aroma’s: sweet chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, a bit vanilla. Mocha, roast & sweet coffee retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasted, coffee. Body is on the thin side for the strength & style. Finishes with heavy roast & ash. I was suprised to find out this is from Carlsberg because it was excellent, at least for an industrial beer. A bit more body would do it even more good.
