2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is pretty nice, with dark bread, nuts, toffee and a bit of chocolate and subtle roast.
Pretty high bitterness, medium-low sweetness.
Much too carbonated.Pretty fucking awful. Also a little bit of alcohol. After aggresive pouring and shaking it a bit it becomes drinkable.
All in all would be much better if not for the carbonation

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Seattle, via Vlada in Belgrade. Foamy head on very dark brown. Interesting porter-roast aroma, a touch metallic. Smooth, warm body with a gathering bitter malt. Nice ruddy, ‘rustic’ roughness. bright carbonation is a bit of a distraction. But flavors are nicely rough but refined. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 15/06/20
Deep near-black brown body, holds a tight tan head.
Nice aroma - distinctly nutty malts, cocoa, dark sugar, sultana, touch of licorice.
Full body, chewy texture, smooth carbonation.
Flavours hits the spot - lovely cocoa, roast nuts, meaty charred notes, licorice & dark toffee, lingering burnt toast with a good hit of bitterness.
Well balanced, well done.
