3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brown colour with solid pale brown head. Fruity aroma with a blanket of spices and dark malts. There is like juniper, clove and other unnamed spices. Flavour is rich and the body seems to be a little more than light. Mouthfeel is a little edgy, maybe due to a rich carbonation. Really nice toasty, bitter chocolate touch that lingers. Reminiscense of smoke also comes to mind, and the very finish is elegantly cappuccino-like. Easily the best low-abv I ever had.
