3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black body, medium brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Similar flavors with some smoke. Light body and carbo. Medium dry roasted malt and chocolate notes. It's good but it would benefit of a bigger body and more complexity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown colour; light beige head with good retention and lacing. Sweet chocolaty aroma, lots of sourness which alternates between black rye bread and red berries, also leather. The roastiness is not as pronounced as I’d have expected. Tastes more roasty than the nose might indicate, sourish of those same red berries and perhaps less black bread. Faint smoky notes. Cold coffee and coffee beans. Kind of ashy dry on the palate. Carbonation very thin but rather active, body on lighter side of medium. This is nice!
