4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle(0.66l): Literally black - what else - with a very slowly collapsing creamy and lacy tanned head; solid nose of dried fruits and leather, almost some traces of coffee detectable, caramel as well; robust bitter flavour, pleasantly balanced by a soft sweetness, full bodied, velvety MF; lingering - as expected - bitter-sweet finish, flavours of caramel, vanilla and bitter dark malt included. Great refreshing summer drink…

Excelente RIS. Está entre as melhores que já bebi. Năo está dentre as mais saborosas, mas está dentre as mais equilibradas. Amargor na medida. Apenas senti o teor alcoolico na hora de levantar da cadeira.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks.. Black, with dark cola hue, sml healthy tan head that dissipates fast.
Smells..roasty malts, dark chocolate, molasses,medium coffee notes.
Tastes..carbonation that immediate disappears to a smooth boozy roasted coffee & chocolate, big roasty malts before a hop bitterness that marries well with the heavy roasty notes.
