3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (K Supermarket, Kamppi)
6 Nice dry roasty toasty aroma, but a little muted.
3 Lovely deep reddy brown, tan head. And then the idiots put it in a clear glass bottle, so punishing them a point for that mistake.
7 Rather a simple dry stout, but definitely does the ’dry’ bit well. Certainly well attenuated, and with hints of dark chocolate occasionally.
4 Smooth, but refreshing palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish lovely and burnt roastiness, and with a gently tingle of noble hops.
13 For a bottled beer, this is very tasty. Shame about the horrific clear glass bottle, there’s a good beer inside.
