From tap at MacKinlays Inn, Stockholm. Dark brown with a solid off-white head. Nice chocolate aroma, a hint of roast. Predominately chocolate flavours, semi-dry. One for the chocolate lovers, though a bit one-dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at MacKinley’s Inn, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby,majestic head. Aroma of hay and dates. Fairly sweet with solid, malty body, a fair amount of hay- and flower-like English style hops dries it out. The malt profile is chewy, but rather clean. Resiny bitter finish. A well balanced beer with nice flavours - I’d still like the malt to be a bit softer to get more out of it
