2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a thick black from the bottle with nice tan head and light lacing. Aroma is corn syrup and malt extract. Taste follows, like a thick pale lager. If I would have seen the commercial description before buying this I never would have.

300 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a small brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, caramel and fruit. Sweet flavour of brown sugar, roasted malt, caramel and fruit with a dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A little too sugary for my liking.

Pours a black with a thin off-white head. Sweet, sugary nose with a hint of roasted malts. In the mouth it?s overly sugary with lots of candy sugar and a bit of chewing gum. Some coffee and chocolate in the end. Not much hop flavor. To sweet for me!

Too sweet in My humble opinion. Smells a little funny. But taste stays longer than expected. Quite nice but not special :-)
