4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from Secret Santa 2014 (winter). What a freakin gorgeous pour...even 30 minutes later this beautiful dark black liquid is covered in a creamy light mocha and thick head that makes you want to dip chocolate chip cookies in your beer...although I didn’t do it. Roasted malt with chocolate, light coffee, some macadamia nuts; moderate carbonation and full yet easy to quaff body, slightly bitter but a promise of sweetness that nicely balances things out, drys out slightly with a bit of lactose on the finish. All comes together very nicely - delicious and my wife would like more of it (I seem to have lost my glass for a bit and then there was less beer).

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Det här blev lite av en besvikelse, smaken bar toner av choklad, kaffe och bär. Kroppen var stabil men balansen var inte okej, inte alls.
