2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle bought last July at Sourced Market, St Pancras in London. Fawn-coloured head to a deep, mahogany coloured body. Minimal lacing. Roasted malty nose, hints of prunes. Sweet taste of black malts and dark fruits. Vague bitterness to the ending. Smooth in the mouth. Gives a rather bland impression (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black in the glass with a soapy coffee like head. Clean roasted malt flavor with a hint of mocha. Very smooth on the palate. Slightly detectable aroma of more roasted malt and coffee. Overall, not a bad brew. I could purchase more...
