3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home while stressing out about work. This stuff is just OK. Appearance is a dark brown with a moderate off white head. Aroma of roasted chocolate malt, smell is quite dry, not very sweet which isn’t a bad thing. Taste goes down with roast, and chocolate, and finishes dry. Really nothing to write home about. Still happy that I tried it, and it’s not bad or anything, just average.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355mL thanks to the dfrom crew. Pours overly carbonated, clear ruby. Beige, short lived head. Nose is minerally, grape soda, heavy crystalline sugar and gummy candies. Taste is minerally, aerated, small chocolate, small coffee. Very light, drained of body, over attenuated, some earthy dirt/iron. Pretty raw and dirty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($4.50): At least the US bottles don’t come in the idiotic green glass, but I feel like the brown is not much better, because this might be infected. Anyway, it pours a dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is funky chocolate and malts. Taste is slightly sour. Otherwise, it is like a light stout. Tastes like a Jolly Pumpkin stout, except that I think that this one was done by accident. And with the completion of this beer I still have never actually tried a CCM beer the way it is supposed to taste. Still, I gotta say that I don’t really mind the sourness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mörk, mörkbrun öl, med stort gräddigt cappuccinofärgat skum. Doft av lingon, rågbröd och mörk choklad, samt något artificiellt. Smaker av mörk choklad, kaffe och vanilj. Kolsyrig och torr munkänsla. Ingen jättegod öl.
