4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours like it should be treacle, the thick brown head soon fades away, and what youíre left with is nothing at all like a Lager is expected to be. Itís light but full bodies and finishes dry. The cocoa/coffee makes this a nice drinkable beer, but I found an underlying sour note that didnít upset me, I just noticed it was there. This is a bit good, and Iíll be buying more.
