Grass and loads of buscuits in the aroma. Taste is mildly sweet, tiny hopbite but very malty. Maybe this bottle is past it´s prime? Biscuit is the word for this. A rather tame hoppy ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
07/09/2013 330ml bottle. Dorata, limpidissima, schiuma bianca abbondante, mediamente persistente. Naso stanco, note fruttate, leggermente agrumate e pinose, biscotto, caramello, non pulitissima. In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, non freschissima, caramello preponderante e amaro stentato. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Deludente per gli standard di Dark Star.
