3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday)
Rich roasty coffee aroma. Sweetish, but so burnt. Smooth in palate, nice carbonation. Full in the mouth. Roasty, a little dry but no astringency. Covers 7% well - almost watery. Tons of red berries in the retronasals. Lovely roast finish. Good one. Did get some soy later, but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment at all.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black in the glass, the head is just a smal light brown lace when you wait like a minute.The smell is decent. Good roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, mocca and some vanilla. At the taste the roastiness is in front and get followed by a good holding chocolate aftertaste, with the vanilla followin right after to combine decent. Not totally outbalanced and needs a small boost for me, but the aftertaste makes this one better. The bittersweetness (most sweet) at the taste is good. Better then expected.
