Bottle. A clear, dark amber beer topped by a small, creamy beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with dark dried fruits, coffee and some chocolate. Some metallic hints. Roasted, coffeeish flavor with hints of chocolate. A little bitterness too. Full to medium body, dry on the palate, with a very soft carbonation. Lasting roasted and coffee-ish finish with a solid dose of dark chocolate. Overall, sure a fine mild, easy drinkable and tasteful. 131228 Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013

Bottle. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma has sweet roast and light cocoa. Mild but full malty and roasty taste. When I glanced at the ABV numbers I was thinking it might turn out to be too watery but it’s really not. Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013

Bottle at home from Voldby. Pours clear dark Brown with a decent off White head. Roasted, malty aroma. Medium low body, slight metallic taste. BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml Bottle: BB 23 Jan 2014. Poured into two old ’Home Ales’ badged Countryman glass tankards on 6 Sep 2013 (the wife wanted half).
Looked fine: dark mahogany body with a full head of off-white foam.
The aroma is all malts, slightly burnt and full on dark chocolate.
Taste wise it is also a chocolate malt lead, but it isn’t that simple, there is a lot more going on. Nutty and woody, some hidden spiciness and always a semi-sweetness being suppressed by the hop content.
Very drinkable and a pleasant change from all the golden brews I seem to be having at the moment.
