3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, dark brown beer with a lush and frothy beige head. Licorice whip and sweet coffee in the nose, notes of tootsie-roll and sasparilla. Well-rounded sweetness and clean bitterness, pretty well balanced with good body and somewhat chocolatey backdrop. Soft carbonation and a creamy impression, with tinges of roast coffee and anise, finishing with a bit of alcohol warmth. Tasty and easily likable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A light alcoholic aroma, nice dark malt, brown sugar and a soft touch of fruit. The head is medium large, beige and creamy-foamy with a long duration. The body is dark red. The taste is quite bitter and very mouth filling. The body is very creamy, rather heavy and with a flat carbonation. The finish is a little bit like medicine because of the bitter touch in the end. A nice one.
