3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am not a fan of too strong burned malt or smoke flavors. This one is very good. There is burned smokiness but it is wel balanced. It has some chocolate notes and finishes with a long dry hoppy bitter taste. Nice!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice hoppy black ale. First smell shows some freshness you dont expect with this level of alchohol. First sip of this black beer shows roasted malts with coffee and some prunes. It has a nice carbonization and bitterness behind this, it sizzles, and leaves your mouth wanting more. An ale that should be drunk slowly. And which grows.
