Subliminal64 (84) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Smells of chocolate, stout and ale aromas. Pours a dark amber colour. No head. Taste of chocolate and mild spices. Almost a mix between a chocolate stout and ale. Almost no carbonation Overall I was not disappointed. This is exactly what I would like to sip on a cold day leading up to Christmas. Will buy again. MB The Beer Bearon

Flaska från SB. Julölsprovning med Nerikes Ölsällskap. Svart med tunnt brunbeiget skum som lägger sig. Söta och lätt syrliga dofter av russin, torkad frukt, mörkrost, lite lätt chark. Medelstor kropp som sväller något i munnen. Likaså gör smaken som mynnar ut i rejält med torkad frukt, kaffe, kakao och syrlig kola.

Aromas of caramel, spices and malt. Fruity, malt and coffee flavor. More taste bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. OK beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
