3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown to black, tiny tanned head. Bitter coffee aroma, little raisins and dark chocolate. First there quite a lot of metal, but it fades out quickly. Strongly coffeeish flavor, dark chocolate, mild smokiness, dried fruits and liquorice. Kinda Impyish flavors, though a lot milder. Light to medium bodied, easy lush carbonation. Alright low ABV sipper, better when warm.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml long necked bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted maltiness, a bit of smokiness, more than a hint of salty liquorice. Taste is much of the same and the salty liquorice comes through even stronger as well as hints of coffee. Palate is quite light, but not watery with little carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle. Pours black with beige, creamy head. Malty and toasted aroma has dark fruitiness and some salty licorice. Smoke and coffee in the finish. Malty taste is strong and dark, sweet and salty at the same time. Finishes slightly bitter and chalky. Medium bodied, soft carbonated and quite thick palate. It might have had a handful too much colour malts. Chaliness is not that great thing. High quality beer anyway.
