3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked this up from Beers of Europe Poured dark brown, not much of a head. Aroma a little bit fruity (Dark fruits steeped in something strong) tasted pretty much as expected quite malty, rich dark stewed fruits, alcohol occasionally noticeable but quite refined really. A nice beer but not particularly memorable.
