3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A black beer almost without head but that head is what there is beige and big bubbled. The nose is great, lots of dark chocolate, roastiness, also fresh fruitness and some earthyness. The barrel gives the interesting nuancess for the aroma. Taste is smooth and enjoyable, chocolate, roastiness and coffee, after beginning also fresh perry like fruitness. The body is slightly too thin as medium. Weird and also very interesting beer, chocolate and roastiness meets the vivacious fruitbarrel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
66cl bottle. Black, no head - zero carb. Aroma takes a while to open up: chocolate, burnt coffee and some sweet apple juice. Slight acidic tart note on the nose too. Taste gives plenty of dark roast malt, figs, coffee, and tart apple cyder vinegar. Medium/thin mouthfeel. Lingering coffee and chocolate, with a touch of sugary apple juice. This was interesting, but too much for one sitting (delighted I shared it). Could have done with significantly more carbonation to lift it - was a bit murky and muddy.
