4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. High creamy lasting and good looking light brown head. Oh yes, black it is indeed. Smooth cfreamy and pleasant aroma of choccolate and vanilla. Impressive. Choccolate dominated creamy sweet but not too sweet roasted mallt flavor with just a weak but nice hops bitternes. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish. Very well balanced and solid body with no sign in smell or taste of alcohol. Maybe not too inventive but indeed very good and addictive. Sorry mates your label is not snobbish enough, otherwise your ratings would get the characters this beer deserves.
