33 cl bottle. Dark reddish brown, thin tan to light brown head, crystal clear. Aroma of dark, roasted malts. Medium mouthfeel. Flavours of roasted barley, slight hint of some fruits and caramel. Some hop bitterness at the back, but certainly it’s not overpowering the malts. Good, sessionable, extremely drinkable all-round beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle from a grocery shop. (I actually tasted it quite a few times in recent years before this rating.) Starts with a nice, silky beige head and very dark brown body. Head is persistent enough to smell and taste: the former is rather neutral, a bit sourish, earthy, maybe. The latter (i.e. the taste) is moderately bitter and has hints of roasted malt and cocoa. The beer itself is moderately sweet with roasted malty character. Silky moderate palate and a bit watery body make it an ideal "drinking beer" and some hiding berry like fruitiness and grassy bitterness make it relatively complex. Not a beer that changes your life but surprisingly harmonic and well done. Could have a bit more bitterness in the aftertaste, though: too sweet for me.
