3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 500 ml from RMgep, thanks Stefan! Poured into a snifter, ABV 7.5%
Pours a black coloured beer, with one finger of brown head on top, a bit thin, with good retention though and quite a lace left around the glass.
Aroma of milky chocolate along with a light roasted malts.
Taste of milky chocolate, a bit sweet at first, then roasted malts and their bitterness are coming forward. The bitterness carries on the aftertaste,with good duration.
A bit thin on the body, I’d like it thicker. Still, medium thin, okay carbonation.
Overall nice beer, and very drinkable.

Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, butterscotch, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is light-medium sweet with a medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. A tasty Baltic Porter, but a tad too sweet and thin.

För maltig saknar bäska dock trevliga kaffe och karamell toner. Tyvärr är smaken rätt kort. Okej
