4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at RBESG Rome Grand Tasting. Black, beige brown head. Aroma of hard roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, light hoppy. Flavour is sweet, hard roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, moccha, very nice coffee and hoppy bitter finish. Loads of flavour in this beer, too much to pinpoint. Fullbodied. I kept going back to this beer at the tasting, I believe I finished the remaining half of the bottle, so thanks a lot to whoever brought this (Jan?)!
