UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 On tap at Fakin Craft Bar. Dark brown, medium tan head quickly diminishing. Aroma is malty and fruity, toasty and roasty malts, berries, light cookie, maybe gingerbread or spices. Very light cardboard, doesn't interfere with the richness. Very nice toasted dark bread flavour. Smooth texture, light body, soft carbonation, light dry finish. One of the better examples of the style. Brix (714) - Roedovre, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2017
