3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with big sticky bubbles and leaves lots of foamy lacing. Smells of deep malt, a bit of citrus, yeast and some hops. I thought this was quite a hoppy beer, zesty yeast and a sticky but refreshing finish. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. The bitter finish made this one a hard sell at more than one. The Alcohol is very well hidden taste wise, but can definitely feel it after the beer is finished.

Cloudy dark chocolate coloured beer. Huge bubbly off white head. Creamy malt nose with a little chocolate and coca cola. Light dry palate. Soft creamy chocolatey malt, very light and airy. Then coca cola with a distinctly bitter herby edge. Finishes light and dry. Joined up and a little unusual.

33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.06.2011
Ugly colour, looks like a mix of muddy water and kotikalja. Aroma is sugary with some ripe fruits. Flavour is sweet with sugar, raisins and some ripe fruits. Palate is too high on CO2. Too sweet but otherwise ok.

Dark toffee colored pour. Really dark. Medium-sized off-white head. No lacing. Solventy caramel and malt aroma. Burnt sugar. Solvent flavor mixed with the same. A bitter dry mouthfeel with a dry almost smokey aftertaste. It’s not as bad as it sounds though.
