4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled: Pitch black coloured. Thin light brown head. Smokyness, butter, malt, spices in the aroma. The taste is fantastic. Liqourice, smoke, roastyness, malt and a good shot of malt. Holy cow this beer is smooth and complex. It’s fullbodied and the finish is bitter and has a long lasting on the palate. This is good stuff.
