3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle someone forgot at my place. Pours tiny hazy reddish black brown with a rather big fizzy dark mocha head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt cereal, liquorice root, pumpernickel bread, lemon zest, hay and soil. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt cereal, soil, wood, hay, sour dough bread and hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is round, soft, tiny roasted astringent, tiny watery and light to medi bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with dark bread, burnt cereal, hay, wood and soil. Nothing wrong except the label but it’s not very impressive either.
