3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark brown with red glow and lasting firm beige head. Aroma is mildly roasted malts with some (milk) chocolate. Roasted malts in this one are just fine, very soft. Taste starts with rather sweet chocolate malts and then switches to a more coffee-like bitterness. Quiet a long aftertaste. Body is low to medium, with a nice soft carbonation. Looking forward to tasting the BA version of this one!
