3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle that I picked up from Kris Wines, Camden area, Sunday 31st March 2013 consumed at home on Saturday 13th April 2013. Pours dark brown with nice cappucino coloured head, fruity with a light sourness on nose. Taste is fruity, I get a little orange, coffee and tangy fruit. Mmmhhh.... actually this is quite tart and whilst not great, its still enjoyable. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, brown/black color, medium sized tan head. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is insane. Begins with dark chocolate, than continues with some orange notes and when you think it’s all over, dark chocolate returns during the finish with addition of cocoa bitterness and some spices. Body is maybe too light, average to soft carbonation. All in all great. //svijet piva

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a black, opaque body with a thin, lasting, beige foamy head. Very interesting malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee and subtle orange hints. Its very well balanced taste carries roasty, woody, herbal, and zesty notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter/roasty finish. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nez de chocolat amer. Première gorgée assez déroutante, les saveurs chocolatées et acidulées avancent côte à côte sans vraiment se mêler. Un piquant assez particulier en attaque. Le Yuzu forcément, même si je ne connais pas assez pour reconnaître .... Frais et intriguant. A gouter à nouveau ...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 14 2015) Pours black with a huge pillowy tan head. Aroma of yuzu zest, orange liqueur, roast malts with a bit of chocolate, smoky. Palate has orange and some yuzu, earthy kind of smoky dark roast malt, orange rind and a little molasses towards the finish, wet earth, mushrooms on the finish?, more smoky ashy roast. Yuzu works fairly well but not convinced it’s the best style for it. Light to medium body with high carb. Not bad but doesn’t quite connect for me. Big yuzu fan so that bumps it a notch.
