3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a growler. Pours a rich deep brown/black with a foamy off white head. The aroma is grainy, like Weetabix with cold coffee and dark chocolate thrown into the mix. Tastewise again dominates with grainy malt sweetness, laced with traces of nuts and figs. Very easy to drink and distinctly tasty. A very nice dark, though more dunkel than schwarz.
