3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. BBE 15.7.2011.
Pours a pitch black colour with a large, foamy, beige head. A bit lacy. Aroma of very strong hops with pine needles and smoke. Flavour of strong hops, chocolate, pine needles, grass and coffee with some sweet notes as well. Medium bodied with a very smooth mouthfeel and a mouthdrying hoppy finish. Very pleasant for such a low-ABV brew.
