3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. Yeah, it’s a negra one. As good as black in the glass and it has a small quickly sidesticking bubbly light tan head. On the nose this reminds me of leather shoes - the once I use in weddings and Christmas tables. Also, some roastiness with lot’s of dark malts and and a little coffee-dryness. it’s quite average on the carbonation with a soft oily mouthfeel. Roasted and slightly burned "thin" flavors. It definitely tastes black. Some sweet type licorice and more leather also appears. Most likely psychological, but I also get a thin ink-like flavor. Really light drinkable actually. Yeah, I did not mind this one a bit. 12.10.2012
