4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep brown with an exceptional dark tan head. Full nose of graham crackers and chocolate. The flavor has a smooth marshmallow in addition to the influences in the nose, and surprisingly doesn’t go to sticky or cloying. Medium full mouthfeel and of course, a fair amount of sweetness.

Flaske på hytta til Sigmund april-14: flott skum og en overveldende duft av smørbart sjokoladepålegg, vanilje og litt kaffe. Herlig balansert smak, sjokoladesødmen tar ikke overhånd. Lett å dele med gode venner, trenger slett ikke et leirbål for å nyte denne. Lekkerbisken.
