3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought at Kaufland Umag, Croatia. Black with creamy beige head, diminishes quickly. Bacon aroma at first, some acidity from yeasts? Taste begins bitter - smoked wood dominates with hints of smoked bacon saltiness. Low carbonation, full body, strong aftertaste. Lacks balance, but it’s a serious, manly stout.
