4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the brewpub
Black color, with brown head that caps it like steady whipped cream. Harmonious aroma, delicate roasted malts, some alcohol, light anise (think Sambuca), very light esters and milk; interesting. Good, soft roasted malt flavor (have to say, it’s winter-room temperature, and some of the carbonation is gone); there’s a quid, not clearly oak or wood; the bitterness is quite strong an plays well with the alcohol warmth.
Not standing out or characteristic, but a well brewed beer as usual.

Bottle at the Brewpub in December 2012.
Black with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, coffee, some wood, dried fruit, licorice and vanilla. Rather soft mouthfeel and "easy" to drink. Not bad at all.
