3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Best before 2014-03-15. It poured a black colour with a faint red hue and a medium big offwhite head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits and hints of alcohol. Flavour is round and balanced. Notes of dark caramel, roasted malts, dried fruits and syrup. Alcohol is noticeable but subtle. A good but perhaps dangerous beer.
