4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.15 l on tap at ’Beertemple’. Pitch black with a frothy, stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty, roasty aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla and caramel. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty taste of caramel, sweet coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla and some oak, followed by a rather long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly warming-alcoholic finish. Full body, very creamy and viscid mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Very impressive, great balance in all regards, nevertheless very intense flavours and a fantastic mouthfeel. Great!
