3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Very dark brown/black colour. Finger-thick beige head, reduces fairly quickly to a thin film and a thick ring with a small amount of lacing. Quite sharp aroma of chocolate, coffee, wood, licorice, acidic fruit, sweet milk, vegetables. Medium body, soft/flat carbonation, mouthfeel is a bit thin. Taste is surprisingly fruity and acidic, to some degree balanced by lactic/chocolate sweetness, but leaving a somewhat off-balance overall impression. Fairly dry finish.

Taste has light sweetness but finishes on the bitter side. Roasty, almost to a point where it sours, some notes of coffee and chocolate as well. light to medium bodied
