3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Sankt Gallen beer garden at Tokyu Plaza, Omotesando. Dark brown black colour with golden creamy head. Aroma is predominately coffee but with a bit of sweet vanilla creaminess. Taste is similar but more vanilla than coffee. Coffee in the background. Quite smoky and roasty. Bit of chocolate and caramel too. I quite like these sankt gallen sweet beers. Quite full bodied but still easy to drink. Nice.

sweet malty, lots of coffee and vanilla with some dark chocolate notes. Malty. A touch sweet but never cloying . Nice vanilla finish. Coffee is fairly strong, but for me that worked.
