2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2010 Bottled 33cl. A very dark beer with a nicely remaining full beige head. The aroma is of apples, coffee, hops, cigarette smoke, pumpernickel and marshmallows. The taste is quite similar, but with some coffee showing up. Sweet, full bodied and earthy with some metallic hints. Quite hoppy. A mediocre mouthfeel. The finish is of coffee. Nothing special or outstanding.... Additional comment: Not my kind of beer. Definitely well brewed though. I don’t like the malt profile. Staying with the initial rating.
