3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Crowbar. This is a dark almost ruby amber brown one, quite dark in the glass and it has a small beige really sidesticking top. On the nose it’s mildly fruited, soft roasted also with tones of coffee, leather and mild smoke. Fair, nothing extraordinary. Tastes alright. Quite roasted and definitely licorice sweet flavors! Lots of dark caramel sweetness wrapped in a thin oily mouthfeel and a average carbonation level. This was actually quite tasty. Would not mild drinking this again. Get vanilla traces in the finish. Grows better and better. 16.02.2014

13.02.2014. On tap at Crowbar & Bryggeri. Black colour. Aroma of dark light roasted malts and Liqourice. I have to say I like the soft subtle. Liqourice aroma. Very nice together with the sweet dark malts.
