3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Dark, clear amber. Some light tan head.
Aroma: Malt, not sure much else. Slight yeast?
Taste: Dark malt, toasted. Smooth and easy drinking. Based on my experience I don’t recommend drinking a full bottle of this with an Indian lentils dinner due to enormous gas production. Almost lost a few friends the next day...
Bought: Trade with Erzengel - thanks!, 1000 ml
