3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2009-05-26, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 6-4-8-3-14=35
Black color; medium head. It has a light aroma of paper. Medium bodied, it has a good mix of flavors: roasted malt, chocolate malt and some caramel, with light residual sweetness too. Solid, but honestly at the festival it tested better.

Black color. The aroma is quite papery, with delicate roasted malt and chocolate. Good body, very chocolatey, with a very nice smoke touch; in the end it’s a bit astringent and has a liquorice touch. Very good.

(Bottled, 1.0l) Very dark brown with a small head. Aroma of earthy licorice maltiness with hints of oatmeal sourness. Flavos is malty, salty and earthy, lightly sour, dryish but not too ashy. Some nice elements, but maybe not the most balanced as a whole.

Bottled 1 ltr (PBF, "steel tank conditioned").
Opaque black color, small brown head, some lace. Smokey, tobacco aroma, roasted notes. Roasted, licorice, lots of tobacco and ash. Medium-bodied. Long roasted aftertaste. A bit too much tobacco ash for my liking.

Fad: Kulsort øl med et fint skumhoved. Brændt duft og klassisk smag hvor der dog mangler en del. Tydeligvis en baseøl for fadlagring da den bestemt ikke når bourbon lagringen til sokkeholderne. Men bestemt drikbar.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. Thx Rene. It pours a black body under a small, tan head. The nose has a sublte smoke hint, chocolate and coffee, faint notes of ham, and some alcohol. The flavor has smoke in the background, with chocolate, coffee, roasted/burnt malts and a nice hoppyness. Some alcohol evident too, getting stronger at the end. Roasted, bitter finish. Full-bodied and quite dry, with some warmth. A lovely one. Rating: 8-4-8-4-17-4.1. 090515
Growler, for free at Plan B. It’s a black beer, with a big, lacings leaving tan head on top. Licorice, butterscotch hints, roasted malts, malty sweetness, a touch of sourness and some alcohol on the nose. Rather sweet on the palate, full-bodied, smooth and lighlty warming. Licorice, some hints of butterscotch and caramel and a bitterness chiming in towards the end. Roasted flavors too. Lasting finish with a certain warmth. Still nice after two years on growler. Especially the appearance impresses. Didn’t adjust the scores due to age and the fact that it was served from a growler. Rating: 7-5-7-4-15-3.8. 110527
