3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Towering greige head, slowly collapsing over near-black opaque red-brown beer. End of bottle solid yeast. Ultra-dry hops’ nose, dry hopbales, Hessian sacks, but definitely appetizing. Hint at astringency, already in the nose. Again ultra-dry-bitter-hoppy, with an outspoken bitter-metallic finish, long lasting. Hint at liquorice without sweetness quinine. Warming up, roasted barley. Chewy, very slick to viscous, without being really full-bodied. Hopbitter overdose. Pity.
