PapaVillum (955) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2017
Sort Stout med fin moccafarvet skumkrone på 2-3 cm tykkels, som svinder til kant og overflade. Rolig og ufiltreret. Tung aroma af hårdt ristet malt, men tillige lidt frugtsødme af røde bær. Oveni noter af chokolade, melasse og gærnuancer af kælderaroma. Dejlig true-to-style Stout-smag. God og charmerende humlebitterhed og fin balance. Bitterheden er solid og balanceret med en mindre sødme. Smagsnoterne er hårdt ristede malte og kaffe. Fin blød mundfølelse med en veltilpasset karbonering. Konsistensen er olieret, kroppen er middel fyldig og afslutningen bitter, let tør og kort. Overall: For pokker, en lille perle. Virkelig velsmagende og en englænder med en ordentlig krop. En af de bedste undertegnede har smagt. 500 ml, flaske, 7.1 % ABV, BB: 06/2017, købt i Meny i Rotunden i Hellerup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.2
DraftDodger (1707) - 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.
