3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Dark brown body with a beige head. Fine aroma of roasted malt, mocha and coffee. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, some fruit with a light but balanced bitterness. Quite average in flavor. Medium body, actually a bit thin, but not bad considering low alcohol. Some roast in aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (50cl), BB March 2013. Very dark brown colour. Fascinatingly varying foam behaviour between pourings; on 2nd pouring a soda-like fizziness leaving no traces of foam, on 3rd pouring a nice-looking greyish-beige head with quite good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, coffee, hint of licorice. Light - quite watery - body, flat carbonation. Fairly dry, malty taste, a bit vegetal and metallic, reminding of cold coffee. Bitter-malty, slightly sour, aftertaste.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff: er dette en stour (som etiketten sier) eller en brown ale? Vammel, intetsigende og vandig.
