2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mild röstiger Antrunk, wenig herb. Die aufkommende Süße passt weniger, schnell wird das Bier milder, monoton. Trinkbar. 10/8/7/6/5/6

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost black; Toasty aroma - slight coffee; palate has dry, husky dark malts....then the problems start showing up. There is too much carbonation, and the body gets thin. As it warms, cardboardy flavours come out. Clearly, this sample has spent too much time in the distribution chain. The flavours are pretty good (like a cappucino & a peanut doughnut), though, so a fresh bottle would be worth drinking. I have ignored the flaws as best as I could in my rating.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Near black body with gray-brown head. Aroma is coffee, moderately sweet. Taste is sugared coffee, with cream even -- not as oversweetened as the Black Abbot (thank goodness), but still too sweet for my taste.
