3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 13C. Black with an inch of tan head. Aroma of dark berries, coffee, bitter oranges, licorice. Creamy mouthfeel. Taste has only just sweet coffee, tar, berries, oranges. Bitter, dry finish with salt and citrus. Any depth to the dark malty flavours is wasted because the hops sweep them away. Wasn’t what I expected based on the label, but didn’t mind.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black as tar with a frothy and foamy one inch dark brown head. Looks pretty damn tasty. The nose is rich and roasty with some burnt malt, espresso, bakers chocolate, and a light, almost citrusy, hoppiness. The flavor is very roasty as well, but there’s also an underlying base of sweet dark caramel too. Some burnt malt, licorice, and dark roasted coffee notes also. Finishes with a little citrusy hops and a light hint of alcohol. Rather full bodied and chewy for being sub-8% with soft gentle carbonation. Slightly sticky mouth coating finish. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Wonderful smoky soy-sauce nose, unfortunately for me that was as good as it got, some chocolate and licorice on the tongue but the taste was nowhere near as good as the smell.

Det här var en riktigt god sak med balanserade toner av choklad, vanilj och kaffe. Kroppen var stabil och upplevelsen trevlig.
