3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a bottle @ Bergen Ølfestival 2013. Deep deep dark brown near black in the glass this one and it has a nice big really lasting and lacing brown top. Really dark well roasted nose with a little bit of both dark chocolate, coffee and wet minerals. Really enjoyable this aroma. It has a nice really light, what I call cloudy mouthfeel and a just low average carbonation level. Again, it’s really well roasted in the taste - never to much though. Slightly minerallish also with hints of paper that’s finally leaving to a really roasted and lasting dry aftertaste. A really fine one! 06.08.2013
