2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice dark color resembling coffee. I get mixed aromas from nutty, to banana, to licorice, and even a bit of plum. There is a bit of body and its also quite smooth. Bready with a slight nuttiness. Would definitely be a cold weather beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog Slovensko. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, dark fruits, nuts. Huge off-white head, quickly disappearing. Clear dark ruby colour. Taste is cofee and caramel, bitter has the upper hand right away. Coffee, caramel and nut flavours work very well here, good balance. Drinkability is higher. Finish is longer in duration, bitter, Finally a beer from this brewery which can receive some decent numbers.
