3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
37,5cl bottle at home.
Black with a brown, frothy head that soon settles to a thin layer.
The first aroma that is evident is an intriguing and complex winous sour that reminds me of balsamico vinager. But there is also some earthy basement aromas, and lingering in the back is the coffee. As the beer warms up I´m getting more and more treelike/woody aromas as well.
Tastes of a combination of dried fruits, spices and chocolate, plenty of bitterness in the finish.
