Skaniai atrodo, putele tirstolka ir laikosi. Skonis lengvas, kartokas, kartumas laikosi ilgai. Kiek gerenis nei vidutiniskas alus.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy brown-dark amber color with a slightly lighter amber hue and a good-sized foamy tan head with average retention, lighter cling and lacing. The aroma featured a blend of malty notes with chocolate, caramel, toffee, and a bit of earthy and grainy hops too. It was somewhat sweet with light notes of chocolate and toffee, but also had a grainy bitter effect. The body had average carbonation and thickness with a slight creamy feel and was a touch dry.
