3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. Pours a deep cloudy brown body with a red hue and a solid beige, lacing head. Nose is mild with yeast, dried fruits, forest and faint hops. Body is medium, perhaps a bit watery and the carbonation is medium+ Good tastes with notes of coffee beans, dried fruits, orange-zest and some thin chocolate with a slightly mild-sour-hoppy aftertaste. I think this was quite alright and it definitely tasted quite good combined with cheese and crackers.
