FatPhil (9308) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 5, 2013
(330 bottle from Csak a Jó Sör, Budapest)
Ridiculously dark with a brief chocolate head. (4+)
Aroma full of coffee and dark chocolate. A very nice aroma that also has some sharp red(?) berry in it.
Very roasted and, unfortunately, ashy in the mouth. Similar finish, with mostly coffee beans. Some hopping comes through.
Good level of carbonation.
A little alcohol in the ’alcohol test’, but otherwise it’s only a little heady. Covers 12% by being big rather than sweet.
This is a well-crafted beast but could do with more nuances and less ash. Gets more velvety.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.
The 3.4 might be an over-rate.
