3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cl. A dark , dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a small, dark beige head. Roasted, lightly bonfire-ish aroma with some iodine and a good dash of peat. Chololate and booze, coffee grit, charcoal and licorice. It’s full-bodied and quite warming, still feeling a bit watery. Roasted, burnt and peated flavor with some raisin notes, licorice and bonfire. Peated, roasted finish with some raisins. Too much peat and charcoal going on, I prefer the original even though this one’s good too. 140420
