Quite a dark one with roasted malt, some coffee, a bit of chocolate and bit earthy in the end. Not a bad one but quite dull.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is deep roast, some mocca and liquorice, touch of metal/vegetable and regular malt. Flavour is quite dry indeed, loads of roast and liquorice, with a strong metallic sidenote. Some baltic notes, but unfortunately the metal dominates a bit too much.
