3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle, thanks to K0mpsa. Dark brown, hazy liquid with pretty big head. Strong bite and alcohol comes through too much. Still aromas of rye and toasted nuts are pretty well presented. All in all good taste but just too strong for me.
