2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @Luppolo 12, Roma 20.7.2013
Dark brown color, small steady brownish head, lace. Milky, toasted nose and some iron. Medium-bodied. At Luppolo they claimed this 8,5% beer - well it was too weak for that. Toasted, caramelly sweetish well not really sweetish but like licorice candy sweet and salty. Some spiceyness. A bit messy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Sheffield Tap. Darkest brown. Tight, lasting, beige head. Aroma is light roast malt. As others have said there is a woodiness, too. Some smokiness. Taste is dry, dark fruit. Light, bitter finish. Had to rush this, mores the pity, but definitely one I’d like to try again.
