Thumbing through her grandfather’s books, Dorothy came upon a recipe for a wonderful stout with intense roasted barley flavours and a dry, bitter finish.
Together with her friend Jimmy, our head brewer, she created this dark, full-bodied number. It boasts roasted coffee notes and plenty of hop flavour.

Bottle @ Øllets Dag, Kolding. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small beige head. Clear arom of roast, malt and hops. Mild, bitter, roasty and joppy flavour with notes of yeast and touches of nuts. Fruity hints. Roasty aftertaste. Rather watery. Drinkable but nothing really special.

Dark coffee and roasted flavours but quite a light body. Head size and retention not much cop. Quite bitter on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice dark black appearance with lots of head that lasts for a little while. Hints of coffee in taste, but not very dominant.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 Mild stout, lett-drukken. Litt lite aroma, litt flat smak. Noe bitter ettersmak. Anbefales dersom man vil ha en lett stout. Passer nok bra til mat, da den trolig Ikke vil være dominerende ifht maten som serveres.
