3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
180 ml bottle. BBE 2029. From Sweden. Thanks Sari!
Dark reddish brown - almost black - colour with a small creamy light tan head.
Chocolate, cherries, roasted malt, fruit liqueur and dark fruits in the aroma. Quite nice. The flavour is dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla sweetness, cherries, dark fruits and some dryness. Very tasty. I can’t feel the 10% at all. Feels like 5-6% brew. Strange. Warming a little bit...
