MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2005 Bottle @ Stockholm Beer Festival 2004
Aroma of a standard home brew attempt; coffe and a bit "chemical". Taste is, however, much better. Maltty, chocolatey and very plesant in general. I would guess it is an attemt to copy Young’s Winter Warmer, but not really there (yet?). 5/3/7/4/14 3.3
RERATE:
Bottle November 2005
Now they are there. This is now a great beer. Wonderful hop aroma. Maybe a bit weak head. Small taste of dark chocolate and weak cappuccino, plus hops. Interesting spicy aftertaste together with some bitter chocolate. You have made it this time, guys!
