3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat gushing to my surprise. Near black with a big, but disappearing tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate with hard roasted/charcoal notes and a faint hint of smoke. Sweet and roasted flavour with some chocolate and coffee notes. Heavily carbonated, too much even after I tried to swirl some out
