Many thanks to Sean for this bottle. Smooth and malty beginning. Nice roasted malt, dry, with a fruity Ale-aroma. Nice full body, highly drinkable, nice intense malty-dry bitterness in the aftertaste. Fresh, smooth-roasty-malty, great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle from Scotia Spirit, Cologne; best before may 2015. Clear, dark brownish red with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Rich, malty aroma of dark fruits like blackcurrant, dried plums and dried cranberries, accompanied by hints of coffee. Sweetish, slightly less fruity taste with the coffee coming a bit more to the fore. Very short, gently bitter finish. Almost thin bodied though not yet watery, soft carbonation. Very aromatic while lacking a bit of taste but really impressive considering the low abv. Enjoyable!
