3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very brown, close to black, semi white/beige foam, dissipates quickly, no lacings. Aroma is roasted malt, slight sweet, noble hops, slight cocoa. Taste is malty without being overly sweet, rich on floral hops, endig quite bitter and dry. Medium body, medium carbo, round almost creamy. This combo works surprisingly well.
