3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 This is my first "special" beer. Nice! Anyway, too bitter for me. Aroma is quite strong, a bit burned syrup , a bit coffee after drinking. Very nice creamy texture in the end, but the little bit slick&thick beginning is a bit too strong.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown body, almost black with a lasting light tan head. Nose is a little sweet, milk chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with just some bitterness helping out.

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.
