3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 0,5l flaske fra Polet. Flott skum som varer. Herlig aroma av sjokolade, mørk karamell og tørket fiken. Smaken står ikke tilbake for dette, kompleks og velbalansert. Et nydelig koseøl. Fra fat på Cardinal 17.8.: fremdeles like godt og med stor munnfylde. Mer humlepreg enn og tørrere avslutning enn flaskeversjonen?
