3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Amsterdam, Helsinki)
Slightly roasty mashy aroma, bit sweetish, some hints of something like sourness. Nice dark red, small keggy head. Mashy roasty taste, some coffee I guess. Where are the aroma hops? Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Nice earthy herbal bitterness in the finish is pretty nice. Slight crotchiness too, alas. Pretty decent overall, but not aromatic enough, pales behing the muflon I just had.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Aroma quite weak or then I have a flu. I don’t really get it. It tastes more like a porter with a bitter twist at the end. I’d prefer most stouts or porters but it’s still drinkable. Nice finish though.
