3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle (18cl). Black, brownish espresso head. Salt licorice, coffee, and lots of roasted malts on nose. Body is fullish, soft. Creamy almost. Lots of bitterness, but balanced out with the sweetness and licorice-coffee of the malts. Feels a bit young. Too green (in hops) and edgy (malts). I should have bought another bottle, aged it a bit. I would guess the flavours would come together quite nicely in a porridge of black goodery.

Bottle Stockholm. 10%. Slick black, brown ring of head, big body. Toned down liquorice, coffee, barley, some spice, semi-sweet with some saltiness. Not sharp at all and alcohol not noticeable. Aftertaste is mostly coffee. A good quality beer overall, but the sum seemed less than its parts.

Mackmyran är det nog som drar ner lite. Världsklass ändå. Smaksak. Cassino är ett geni
