4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle in a snifter. Pours a dark brown color with a slight ruby tint. There is basically no head. Aroma is roast, sweetness, and a very light hint of citrusy hops. It’s a nice scent, but not very strong or complex. Taste is very similar to the aroma, but there is also a tad bit of coffee at the back end. The mouth is a tad bit crisper than I expected. Overall, it’s pretty good, but it’s not FIS good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nesten helt svart med tykt brunt skum. Lukter sjokolade, kaffe og alkohol samtidig litt syrlig. Smaker omtrent som den lukter. Lite kullsyre, mye bitterhet. Fyldig og kremaktig munnfølelse, lang varm og bitter ettersmak. Man kjenner også alkoholstyrken godt...
