3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, schiuma beige fine e persistente. Aroma di cioccolato, latte condensato, caffè, vaniglia, leggera liquirizia. Al palato corpo medio, cosi come l’intesità dei sapori. Inizio dolciastro con vaniglia, latte e cioccolato seguito da una seconda parte con caffè, tostato e terroso che si allungano nel finale. Manca un pò di morbidezza e l’aroma è un pò corto anche se è una buona birra.

Bottle from Craft and Growler. Damn, this is good. Really well balanced. A little roasty, a little chocolatey and a little bitter. A dry palate that is a tad thin but that's being picky. I'd happily drink this again.
