3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Huge, dark-beige head, very dense; very dark burgundy-red beer. Nutty, meaty, very estery and yeasty brew. Sweet nose, but the meaty notes get realy imposing; Nutty taste again, very sweet hazelnuts on cheap Marssala. Retronasal dark malts, earthy, as well as leafy. Very slick, rather well-bodied, aftertaste with more sweet cheap port-like,fading flavours. It’s probably pleasing to the masses.
