3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
<i>Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. </i> Cloudy dark nut brown, small coarse head. Fruity roasty nose with some bubblegum. Fairly sweet with velvetty soft mouthfeel. Chewy, gently roasty malt gives a mouthfilling solid body and pleasant flavors of wheat bread, spuns sugar and chocolate. Gently warming finish with some light coffee bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thx to Brugmansia. Pours a clear, dark brown body with just some beige bubbles for a head. Roasted, bonfire sour, dusty nose with some coffee. The flavor isn’t very pleasant, it has a strange sourish bonfire taste, and some coffee and roasted malt pulling in the right direction. Medium body, flat and dry. The finish goes in the same direction as the initial flavor. Gone bad? At least it didn’t suit my palate. (080823)

Bottle @ TFODRBSG, Ulfborg, 2008.
[thank you, Brugsmansia/fonefan]
Pours clear broen with virtually no head. Aroma is sweet, light chocolate and coffee with some toffee notes. Flat and a little bit thin. Flavour is dry, lots of roasted notes giving way to sweet chocolate and coffee in fine balance.
