3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from 66cl bottle at Beer Enthusiast release party, Håndverkerstuene. Pours very dar, almost black, with a small beige head. Fruity aroma with dried, dark fruits, caramel, nuts, chocolate with hints of roasted malt, coffee and vanilla. Alcohol is well integrated, but noticable. Medium to full body. Sweet and fruity with a balanced bitterness and some roasty notes in the finish. Liquid dessert! Sweet, but surprisingly pleasant.
