DraftDodger (1311) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2016
Copenhagen 18/11 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Label with blue ornaments and assurance that this beer is based on a historic recipe. Pours dark brown with red tinge and light beige head. Settles as thin almost transparent layer of foam. Thin lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is intense. Coffee, dark chocolate, brown sugar and toffee. Alcohol lurking in the background. Soft carbonation and surprisingly watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by quite massive and pronounced coffee bitterness. Bitter aftertaste. Lingering. The body is a bit thin but nice aroma and taste. And it carries a punch.
