2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting under the name Christmas Velvet. Somewhat weird smell, either that or my nose is fucked, this smells like an outdoor toilette. The taste is better, malty with some roasted notes. Weird beer and not too my liking.

330 ml bottle. Dark brown body with a huge brown-tainted head. Notes of roasted malt, burnt wood, dark chocolate and licorice. Sold under the name "Christmas Velvet" which is totally stupid as there is nothing christmasy about this beer. Quite nice stout though.
