3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Intensive fruity notes of dark berries. Notes of dark chocolate, cacao, roasted malt. Very dark brown to black color, creamy, brownish head. Flavor is also full of fruitiness of berries, also chocolate, alcohol, burnt malt, some smoke, roasty bitter finish. Dry, roasty end. Complex but with a too intrusive alcohol note. Also a bit unbalanced, some more sweetness or aging would maybe help.
