3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Kitty’s, Helsinki - shared with Rune) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had roastedness and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, roastedness, sweetness, burntness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and quite burn. I found this beer quite burnt for a dunkel but it was still quite pleasant.
