3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a small head, which fades quickly. Aroma of salty licorice, molasses and raisins. Rich flavour of roasted malts, salty licorice, some soy sauce tiramisu, dark chocolate and rather sweet raisiny notes. Full bodied, oily and thick mouthfeel with a roasty, lingering, sweet finish. It’s like drinking oil.

Intense roasted malts, coffee, awesome chocolate.. dunno.. I have tried more chocolaty brews, but this one was kinda bullseye for what I like, licorice , bit fruity. Smooth Nicely balanced brew.
Ofc.. its not very close to iconic beers, but anyways.. pleasantly enjoyable
