3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl, BBE 04/2015. Pours black in color with a frothy tan head. The initial notes were some smokyness which turned into some sweetish licorice, burnt coffee beans and light herbal notes in aroma. There are also some dark fruityness present here, for instance a bit like not that ripe plums. Slightly burnt coffee and herbal notes in taste. A bit light perhaps, but still this is quite nicely packed with both aroma and flavor considering the low abv. Soft and smooth mouthfeel nonetheless. Later on there appears some smokyness and hints of saltyness in aftertaste.
