3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ ōlbutikken, Cph (release).
Pours redish black with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has nice, dark chocolate, soft smoke and lightly roasted. Some hops peep through. Low carbonation with a slightly thin and watery feel. Flavour is very nice, though it is very dry. Lots of ashes, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Some sugary sweetness that tries to balance the ashy dryness, but never really succeeds. Good, but a tad unbalanced.

Botella, thanks Pinball. Pitch black colour with a steady nice light brown creamish head leaving a good lacing. Soke aroma with chocolate and roasty malt. Great mouthfeel. The flavour has lots of roasted malt with smoke, coffee, chocolate, a very pleasant bitterness and a long lasting roasty smokey dry finish. Yum!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours really dark brown with a 3 finger frothy/foamy tan head. Aroma seems mostly chocolate at first, then a bit smokey. Not getting hop. Thereís also a burning sensation in the nose from excessive and repetitive deep inhaling. Full bodied. Thereís smoke, thereís chcoolate, thereís citrus bitter. The smoke isnít bacon. Itís frickin burnt wood. Like charred, quenched and left to moulder. Thatís not bad, itís just kind of charcoal. And it seems chocolate always comes back in the end. Finishes dry and moderately bitter. Now Iím thinkin charcoal and baking chocolate. This is pretty complexly changeable, if you can have complex with about 3 primary inputs.
