3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from acknud. Almost a black pour wtih a small off white head. Aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malt and some faint coffee notes. Flavor is much sweeter and richer than I would have ever expected. Irish style stout? Not really. Flavor has some raisins, chocolate, prunes, roasted malt and an odd sweetness.
