3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Pours deep brown to black with a large, frothy, beige head. Aroima has nice fat chocolate, light milky, some slight licorice, a bit of vanilla. Lowish carbonation, very dry and kinda light mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of malty bitterness and lots of chocolate. Very dry and quite bitter cocoa. Lots of character, but the mouthfeel is kinda light to justify the excessive cocoa-bitterness.
