3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Ølbutikken, Cph (release).
Pours redish black with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has nice, dark chocolate, soft smoke and lightly roasted. Some hops peep through. Low carbonation with a slightly thin and watery feel. Flavour is very nice, though it is very dry. Lots of ashes, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Some sugary sweetness that tries to balance the ashy dryness, but never really succeeds. Good, but a tad unbalanced.
