3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From l’Epicerie, Le Bon Marché, Paris
Black color; large head, stiff. Light aroma of cardboard, roasted malt. Medium body structure, there is a strong flavor of roasted malt, possibly dusty, with a late and light liquorice touch; very light sourness from the black malts; dry finish. Balanced.
Nordic style; not my favorite, but not bad..
