3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Dark brown body with thick creamy beige head. Aroma of dry fruits, roasted malt and spices. Flavor is warming, sweet (malt, molasses) candy sugar and a hint of licorices. A bit over carbonated – fizzy palate. Aftertaste is relatively bitter and slightly roasted. Despite of many difference flavors this beer turns out a bit one dimensional. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great beer, but one bottle may be just to much for me at one time.

Hazy dark copper with a big (yeah, my bottle is overcarbonated too) off-white head. You can pick up some caramel malt, but it’s dominated by burned plastic sulphur aroma. Dry roast malt flavour with a bitter finish.
