Taste is chocolate, cocoa powder, caramel, coffee and hints of licorice and nuts. Full, creamy body, medium to soft carbonation. A bit sweet, but very nice.

Pinball (12034) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2015
1.5L bottle from mikkeller beer shop. pitch dark, smooth brown head. mild chocolate, hard roasted malts, coffee aroma, quite well blended now (may 2015). faint woody note, and i think some sweetness from the grand marnier. Palate is watery and smooth at the same time, kinda strange. flavor is quite sweet, with sugary notes, notes of roasted malts, grand marnier, light chocolate, milk. A very sweet imp. stout, easy drinking, but somewhat too sweet for my taste. The end is quite interesting as the sweetness is joined by a good dose of roasted malts and booze. You would guess it way lower than 9.8% from the flavor.
