3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of fiulijn. Pitch black pour with a thick tan head. The nose is soft and a little bit chocolatey. Very clean sort of malt character. A bit of raisin and roast malt but it also has a lean sort of palate. A touch of bitterness on the back. Decent stuff but pretty unusual.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite light, not too viscous but very sweet. Chocolate in abundance in the malt - and well done. A little bit harsh/boozy but not overly so. A sweet, dry mouth left afterwards.

Bottle shared at 3. Berliner Weisse Gipfel, thanks! - Rich vanilla bourbon-doused chocolate chip cookies with a baking soda brininess and oatmeal depth in aroma, oak chips. Smooth and unctuous in mouthfeel, while remaining well drinkable and never cloying or soy-sauce like. Mainly dark dry caramels and brownies in taste given depth by oaky dryness, baking soda minerals, vanilla, dried liquorice root.
