Not bad, little funky but some nice carmel notes that came out right away. I don’t know if I would have it again, but it was an interesting experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Angenehm schokoladiger Geruch, ausgewogen, sehr leicht hopfig. Schokoladenmalziger Antrunk, bleibend, sogar etwas milder werdend, mittelwürzig, das Malz bleibt im Vordergrund, kein Aroma wagt sich in die Nähe. Milder, leicht hopfiger Abgang, im Nachgeschmack noch einmal SEHR schokoladig. Leicht röstig, milder werdend. 11/11/12/12//11

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amazing! Tastes like burnt coffee but in a good way. Darker than the dark side of the moon. Delicious. Guinness wishes it was this beer. Head is not important. The pouring is not important. The fact that it came from a tap is also not important. Try this, you wrong be disappoint.
