3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very nice chocolate aroma. Som toffe is in the aroma as well.
Brown hazy colour
Chocolatey and malty taste. Could have done with more bitternes
Light body, average carbonation dry texture. To light body for a brown ale
Despite some short comings it is a nice enough brown ale

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Very dark crimson color with a brown tinge to it; small, brownish head with quite good retention. Strong smell of dark malts, fruits, liquorice, and some roast aromas. Malty taste as well, again quite a lot of liquorice and dark fruits; mostly sweet with some bitter tones shining through. Unexpectedly the body is light, texture smooth, and carbonation soft. Medium long finish, rather sweet with a soft hop, biscuit bitterness. Overall quite a good beer but a tad watery for my taste and has too soft a flavor.

Bottled 500ml K-Kamppi. Dark brown-ruby color, decent beige head. Chocolate, cocoa, yeast in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Some dark chocolate, cocoa powder, European hops. Shorty finish. Nicely balanced brown ale which just needs a bit more ABV.
