3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle @ Konttori
Dark cola brown beer with blonde head. Aroma has chocolate, licorice, pine, resin and toffee. Flavor is resinous and grapefruity bitter as well as chocolaty sweet. Palate is medium full and slick. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste is resinous with licorice and coffee acidicy. Decent, but again the age of 12 months is too much for this, it shows on the aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Backlog rating. Bottle in London. It pours a deep amber-brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is earthy and malty with notes of pines needles, dried leaves and cut grass. Taste is malty with some caramel, earthy notes and piney hops and resin. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a good take on the style
