3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
7 Super rich, slightly chocolatey, roasty aroma.
5- Very dark red, just some ruby glints through it, lovely tight, fairly persistent, thick tan head.
7- Solid roasty body, slightly milky and again chocolatey. Hint of real burntness too. Very pleasant, even though it’s not a very complex.
4 Smooth palate, full-feeling and succulent in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Finish is mostly the richly roasted grains. Some slight bitterness from burntness and hops accompany that.
13 Pretty solid schwartz, fortunately less sweet that many others we’ve had. Good one.
