MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2009
Draught at KØ09. Cloudy black colour. Very small light brown head. Slightly rough bitterness. Faint hint of coffee. Too much malt bitterness for me. ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2009
A very dark brown beer with a small off-white head that actually leaves some lacings.
The smell is fairly mild with aromas of smoked and roasted malts, burnt wood, chocolate and hints of fruits.
The taste is quite sweet and balanced with flavors of mild peaty smoke, roasted malts, coffee and dark fruits. The finish is mildly bitter, dry and a short with hints of hops.
It’s quite soft on the palate with a rather full body and very mild carbonation. Goes down really easy.
All in all, a decent beer, very easy to drink.
