3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Murky, dark brown body with a small off-white head. The aroma has nuts, caramel, sweet smoke, and coffee. Again, it’s reasonably nutty and toasty with apparent bitterness. Pretty solid but the aroma outshines the flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 20 June) Colour is dark brown, mahogany with hints of ruby, with frothy beige head. Nose is malty, slightly roasted, with caramel, butter-scotch and some chocolate. Taste is malty with the same caramel/toffee character, some chocolate and coffe detectable as well. Slightly sweet with a balanced hoppiness in the finish. Tasty and enjoyable, but hardly exciting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle at Blĺ Rock Cafe. Very dark with some lasting beige head. Aromatic malts. Most of the flavour profile is about caramel. Notes of bitterness in the finish. Rather thin and watery, but well worth a test now and then.
