3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Casa de Greg, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Holy fucken balls, the foam is out of control on this slut. No apparent sign of infection in the nose. Hazy brown appearance. Slight metallic, cola, caramel, a bit sweet, lightly roasted coffe aroma. A bit twangy, milk chocolate, mocha, light coffee, earthy, creamy flavor with a soft yeast presence. Pretty good but not as good as some of their releases.

750 ml Smokestack series bottle. Pours brown cola color with a very large foamy frothy khaki head that last, but eventually settles to a film. Aroma has roasted malt some molasses and dark fruit with the coffee fighting through. Taste has nice strong black coffee roasted malt some sweet cream and chocolate subtle bitterness and spice with alcohol on the finish. Palate is thin fizzy and warming. Really taken by surprise with this one, really nice!

Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Ivar): en ren, mild og innsmigrende kaffearoma stiger opp fra et flott og tett skum (som dessverre ikke varer). I smaken sniker bæraktige og søte tropiske frukter seg inn. Totalbildet er enkelt, men dog so smooth and drinkable.
