3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark brown with large light-brown head; aroma with slight burnt caramelish notes, but also of smokey ham and hints of dark bread and fruitiness; after the surprising aroma the flavor is more or less what you might have expected in the first place: sweet, slightly buttery caramelish, almost syrupy - that at first, but soon followed by quite strong roastedness and light to moderate bitterness; even so strong that you feel like the light body isn’t quite enough to balance it out; slightly watery texture, moderate carbonation. A bit confusing one, really.
