2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
AROMA: hay, citrus, leather,
APPEARANCE: brown, clear, poors with a frothy head, which dissappears in seconds
TASTE: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour
PALATE: full body, sticky, lively, long finish, bitter
Not a bad beer, but just not to my taste. Strange combination of chocolate sweetness with bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled, BB 03/2010).
Very dark brown color, small off-white head. Bready, mämmi-like perfumic nose. Sour milky lactose, coffee, roasted malts then sugary finish with low bitterness. Chocolate notes are nice, but it is all. Combination of sweet porter and strong ale was not so successful.
