2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
chocolate, coffee, vanilla, black, cloudy, minimal head, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, flat, astringent. Not very appealing to look at, akin to the blackest dirty water you’ve ever seen. Sweet smelling, like a chocolate coffee concoction you might find at Starbucks. Taste isn’t too special, would probably be better with a slightly lower a.b.v.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice, but different from what I’m used to in this style. More heavy malted than expected, and yet more bitter than expected as well. Nevertheless, good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark amber, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel - some toffee and some dark fruits, light hoppyness. Medium malty and sweetish flavor with caramel - light toffee and some dark fruits - berry fruitiness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel - light toffee and some dark fruits - berry fruitiness, faint hoppyness, light alcohol. Caramel/toffee sweetish strong ale - too sweet and bit one-dimensional for me. Sweet but 6,2% makes finish bit drier.

Tasty. Sweet caramel flavor, malty and sort of bready. Liked this one a lot. Plus, it's organic so it's good for me and the environment

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out in a clear very dark brown chopsolour with low head and medium to smooth body. Nose of nuts and malt. Taste of nut cake, caramel, berries, apples, light fresh malt and gentle whiskey. Very well balanced with not that much of high alcohol notes. Easy and smooth to drink, very enjoyable.
