3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ølfestival 2012. A dark brown beer topped by a dense, fingerthick beige head. The aroma has salty liqorice, dark berries and roasted malts. It’s dry and full-bodied, with a nice level of carbonation. Roasted malts, liqorice, coffee and a nice bitterness in the flavor, with coffee and bitterness in the end. Overall, a nice one indeed, but there’s too much salty liqorice going on. 120512
