4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep black with thin brown head. Incredible bacon nose. Aromas are mainly roasted malts, smoked malts, coffee, with notes of black fruit. Low carbonation, thick texture. Long sweet coffee finish. Maybe a lack of bitterness. But excellent choice for tough morning anyway, just missing the eggs!!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dense and very black and very opaque. Head is very dark and very scarce.
Aroma is very intense: smoke, chicory, soy sauce. And that’s all: everything it has in intensity it lacks in variety.
Again, in the mouth it feels very dense, very creamy. Very fizzy, very bitter. Not very long finish.
I’d like to say it’s very nice, but nonetheless it’s not very bad.
