3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 24.09.2009
Aroma has licorice, well roasted malt and coffee notes. Flavour has pleasant roastiness, licorice and some dark chocolate. Finishes with ash, coffee notes and hints of cocoa. Some may find the malt here way too roasted, but I seem to enjoy even this level of roastiness. Palate could be more rich though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeasty malty aroma. Tan head dissipated to none over clear cola coloured beer. Fairly thick mouthfeel with a subtle fizz on the tongue. Presence of yeast is noticeable alongside the subtly sweet yet bold dark malt flavour. Herbal bitter edge leads to a dry sweet malt finish.
