3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light tart aroma dominated by caramel and chocolate, with plums complementing the tartness and additional notes of coffee, pumpernikel bread and roast. Quite roasted flavour for this style, with caramel and chocolate upfront, the tart plummy thing providing the balance, and the roasted, light to medium bitter finish completing the picture. Excellent beer.
