4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep clear mahogany brown. Off white head that starts about a half in or so and levels to film like cover. The spicy caramel malt aroma is subtle. Sweet rich toasted on the tongue. Has a spicy Earth like quality. Has a pleasantly and sweet after taste. Leaves me wanting more and I do. I’d certainly recommend this one.

Very sweet. Dark. Sour. Something just doesn’t fit. It kind of coats the tongue and that’s not good. Looks better than it tastes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 50cl bottle at home. It pours a clean deep copper colour with a decent and lasting tan head. Aroma is very malty, caramel, some bread, but overall the aromas are somewhat muted. Taste is roasted malts, a lot of malts, some sweet caramel, somewhat watery and with a slight of bitterness at the finish. It’s moderate to light bodied with considerable carbonation and a clean and dry taste. For a dark type of beer it lacks the typical complex and rich flavors, but at least it has a malty and caramel character and it is very drinkable.
