3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught (shared with Joona, tnx!). Very close to black (deep coppery brown) colour with small off-white head. Aroma is smoked wood, some tar, mild roasted notes, as well as some slight ashes and caramel. Flavour is liquorice, mild peated and tar like notes as well as some burnt wet wood. A bit watery as for the palate, but still very nice and even refreshing.
