3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s an almost black on, topped by a dense, dark beige head leaving lacing. Roasted malts, caramel and coffee, some acidic notes and fruity sourness. A good dash of chocolate and a touch of leather too. It’s full-bodied, soft and smooth, with some roasted sourness. There’s a touch of ashtray in the flavor, with dark chocolate, roasted malts and some dried fruits. Long finish. A beer that needs more than a sip to shine. 151114
