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.

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

Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma is smoky, roasted, rather sweet with some soft coffee. Light carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is a good deal smoky, balanced well with loads of dark chocolate, some coffee and light hoppiness. Long, lingering, dry, bitter and roasted aftertaste. Yum!
Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of roasted malt as well as light notes of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol and lots of roasted malt, leading to a dry and roasted finish. Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2009
Draught. [Beer festival 2009] Average brown head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma was quite complex with notes of smoked timber and smoked salami, roasted malt, liquorish, dark chocolate, mild coffee, vinous and somewhat dried fruity notes in there as well. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and mild alcoholic and thick texture. Heavy sweet and bitter flavor in balance. Lingering smoked salami and roasted malty finish. Lovely René!

On tap. Pours completely opaque black with a small and creamy beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malts and some distinct peaty smoke.

Very well crafted. 150509 yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2009
