3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours basically black with a medium sized head & decent lacking on the glass.
The aroma is sweet & roasty. It’s got some licorice and molasses as well as a touch of chocolate, dark fruit, & raisin.
The flavor is nicely bitter and far roastier than the aroma would have you expecting. It’s got some dark roasted coffe, some raisin & plum, along with some earthy happiness. It’s mildly sweet and lightly smoky.

This thing is loaded. Shoyu...balsamicy most. Palate its more of a 3.5. Dark chocolate notes but milk chocolate overall. Finish is ever so lacking...just nudge would put it in the right place.

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.
