3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Black with hints of ruby at the edges. Medium-sized fine-laced beige head that clings to the glass. Clean roasted aroma with delicate phenolics. Hints of sausages. Chocolate and a little ash. Nice roasted character. Quite dry, but with a rich body. The ash runs through the middle and lingers all way towards the end. Crisp dry easy-going hop bitterness. Smooth texture. I like this one a lot. Very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma aromatic with light hint of central European hops , woody roast like bottom. 7-
Appearance there might be slight haze but that was hard to see as you might have guessed. Brownish base with darker beige like top. Some lace. 3+
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied with thinner sides. Dark roast with woody feel , slight bitterness that followed. Fundamentally fine but its character felt bit sterile. Felt factory like made…no soul.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Pulp. Black, flat, and dead looking, with almost no head. Smells sweet and syrupy with an extract aroma, like vanilla extract. Is thin and not as syrupy as it smells. . Has toasted coffee bean in the finish, but with a Starbucks frappucino feel to it. Tastes better than it smells, though, and the slightly burnt aftertaste is nice.
