4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colour similar to molasses, head is brown, fluffy and lasts for quite some time, but leaves no lacing. Aromas are burnt bread, molasses, nuts and roasty notes. The coffee wasn’t very noticeable. Taste is sweet, with a dry finish. Mouthfeel is pleasant, slightly thick without being syrupy, and the carbonation is low, but not too low.

Flaske. Mørkbrun let diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Duften er markant sødlig kaffe og lover godt. Desværre er smagen skæmmet af en metallisk bismag der irritere. Kunne være bedre.
