3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Mealy milky coffee aroma with earthy notes. Also something odd in there that I can’t analyze properly; vaguely chemical in nature. Sweet powdery earthy taste with chocolate, earth and milk notes. Fullish body. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel, very rounded. Dryish mealy burnt coffee aftertaste with pine needle and earth notes. Nice, mild, drinkable. Could have more character. (0.4l draft at Grünerløkka Ølfestival. Second batch.)
