3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cremig malziger Antrunk. Nussige und feine Röstaromen sind bereits von Beginn an vorhanden. Das Aroma bleibt durchweg intensiv, der Geschmack vollmundig. Dabei variiert die Süße etwas, die Röstigkeit geht zugunsten einer aromatischen Bitterschokoladennoten zurück. Geringe Bananigkeit. Super! 7/12/12/11/10/12

A: The beer pours black in color with a rather impressive two fingers of tan head.
S: Intense roasted malt and coffee aromas to this. Plenty of dark chocolate aromas with a subtle earthiness. Perhaps a hint of smoke, same thing for licorice. A bit of molasses and toffee for sweetness.
T: The roasted malt flavor is quite powerful with a slight bitterness and earthy hop note. Lots of strong coffee and dark chocolate flavors, maybe a bit of licorice and burnt sugar. Subtle sweetness on the mid-palate.
M: Medium bodied with smooth, medium carbonation.
O: A very tasty beverage. Another solid beer from Green Flash.
