Cask at Charlies Bar, Cph. Pours deep chestnut brown with a nice, small, creamy, beige head. Great duration. Soft aroma, light prunes and chocolate. Low carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel - lightly prickly. Nice flavour. Lots of chocolate, fruitiness, sweet malts, toffee. Finishes with a great amount of dryness with roasted malts, cloves and good, flowery hoppiness. Lovely.
