3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5L bottle, BB 11.06.2014. Pours dark brown almost black with tan head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is roast, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is coffee, sour, roast, smoke, tobacco, fruits and very light sweetness. Finish is sour and slightly dry with some nice smoke. Overall: this is great surprise; I was expecting something a lot worse. It seems that BB should be read as "BA - Better After".
