3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweetish aroma with hints of oak, liquorice and white meat. Beautiful foam, dark in colour. "Naughty" flavour - tastes of overboiled soup and soot. A bit too eager hopping and a slightly too endurant bitterness. Hints of whisky, which is a really good thing.
