4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, as "Vampire Slayer". Pours vcompletely black with a one-finger brown head. The aroma is of roasted malts and chocolate. The taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and sugars and a bit of coffee. Full body and soft carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Impossibly smooth and velvety feel with a long roasted aftertaste and a slightly bitter finish. Some hops could’ve made this even better, but it already is damn good.
