2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff juni-13: tårnhøjt skum, denne er tydeligvisoverkarbonert. Syrlighet fra rugmalt og sjokoladepreg fra sjokolademalten. Skarp i kantene. Følte røykmaltpreg i starten, men det forsvant og ble erstattet av noe gressaktig. Ingen suksess ved in ende av bordet.
