Draught at Mikkeller Bangkok. Black colour with a small, neat brown head. The aroma is not excessive, there is chocolate and coffee with a hint of chilli and cognac, a little woody. The flavour is sweet with roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cognac, with a light chilli burn. A little smoky. Surprisingly balanced, a really good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Firm dark brown, with a decent ringed tan. Soft spicy apple, firm cinnamon. Initial taste is soft dark malt, orbits around a neat burnt apple roast and clean peppery grit. Carbonation is soft, welcoming and soft mouthfeel.
The ABV fades past nicely, softly sweet finish. Linger is gritty spicey apple.
