3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Served a medium-to-dark brown body, clear, and with a small-sized, light beige head.
Smell: A nose of toasted, far-off stewing fruits, and Dutch cocoa.
Taste: Starts off with toast, than chocolate powder followed by a tiny hint of caramel. Moderately sweet. Develops some bittersweet chocolate earthiness late in the taste. Faint esters. Gentle, lightly chocolaty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Lightly carbonation.
Overall: Has a decent flavor, but the body and carbonation always leave me wanting.
