Bottle from Borut, thanks! Lots of moccha though more on the chocolate than the coffee side, a vanilla tobacco note and some cherries. Good aroma and flavour depth, slightly chewy body and soft mouthfeel. Light bitter, light sweet. Full of flavour yet laid back. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in Ljubljana. Pours dark brown with a slowly dissipating light brown head. The aroma is a definite coffee grind impression, roasted to burnt malt, bakers cocoa, earthy hop notes. Some sweetness from the oats in the flavour but predominately bitter, dry, roasted malt. Nice smooth mouthfeel. I had beer geek breakfast earlier tonight, this poor bastard had a hard act to follow.
