1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Acidic aroma. Decent colour and head. Flavour is a total mess, acrid bitterness and over-the-top coffee notes. Far too much going on and not blended well at all. Unpleasant bitter finish. Classic example of trying too hard. very poor.
