3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Beer Temple. Dark color, medium brown head. Aroma of loads of coffee, roasted malt, chocolat. Nice spicy coffee which blends very nicely with the roasted malts from the base beer, the coffee is quite present but never overpowers the base beer. Soft bitter taste, medium sweetness. Full bodied. Very nice stuff.
