4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black, brown head. I poured it in a Kasteel glass and funnily it looks exactly like that. Nice aroma with indeed chocolate but also some red apple, muffins and a bit of caramel. Taste is pretty dry, roasted malts and a solid bitterness. Has a quality feel to and and definitely enough flavour. Medium full body and dry ending. Big on falvour if you consider the low ABV. Well done brew. (75cl bottle, reasonably priced)
