3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (purchased at the brewery): Clear, amber coloured, mid-sized and slowly collapsing loose off-white head, mild, but distinctive toasty-fruity nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and soft; increasing, but sill mild, bitterness towards the dark-malty and sweetish chocolatey finish. Quite well balanced, quite good...
