3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From cask @ Borefts 2012. This is a deep brown one with a big-bubbly and sidesticking beige top. On the nose I get a soft chocolate tone, biscuits, some ripe old fruits and thatís about it. Soft to flat on the carbonation an it has a mild oily mouthfeel. Fruity hoppy flavors. Not much roastiness in this one. Tastes more like a dry English style IPA juiced up and added a black color. Still, itís quite tasty. 30.09.2012
