DraftDodger (1734) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2017
Copenhagen 10/12 2017. 35,5 cl bottle from Meny. The usual Sierra Nevada design with drawing of lush hills with a lot of barley. Pours clear dark brown with red hue. Clumps of yeast moving around in the glass. Small off-white head. Settles as thin patchy layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet and roasted. Caramel, roasted malts, cocoa and molasses. Surprisingly strong carbonation and fat, creamy palate. Flavor has strong sweetness but balanced by medium bitterness. The combination of fat palate and well balanced flavor makes this a big, heavy pleasure.

beern (221) - Alabama, USA - NOV 5, 2017
Pours black and mostly opaque with a toasty, chocolate and hop aroma. Tastes of roasted chocolate malt with a rich hop finish. It’s light bodied and resinous with very little carbonation. There is also coffee in the finish adding to the mild bitterness to balance the semi-sweet chocolate malt. It finishes mostly dry. Toasty and resinous for a light bodied beer.
