3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown lasting head. Hazy deep brown almost opaque body. Sulphury coffee aroma with rye notes. Dry-sweet burnt rye grain taste with sugary notes. Very harmonic and delicate. Mid- to thin body. Dry straw, chocolate, and coffee aftertaste with floral peppery hop notes. Dry burnt rice and coffee taste settles in the mouth as you drink. Very nice! Grew on me as I drank. (0.3l draft at plan b, Copenhagen.)
