3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of a beer being good for me is that is can back up the claims that it makes. This fine beer delivers on all fronts and doesnít pretend to be something else. Itís a big, black, tan topped, chewy bodied pal. One litre of pure ebony goodness in a bottle; big chocolate and roasted malt notes comprise both nose and taste, some light nuttiness as well. The mouthfeel is just great, not too flat but instead with some bite and a satisfying chomp. I would drink this anytime.
