2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma hints of smoked sausage and wood. It pours pitch black with a nice thick foam. Taste is very sweet, and it tastes of.. well.. sausage, not great at all. This was a nice attempt at making an imperial stout, but it didn’t turn out all that great.
