2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It smells malty and fruity. Nearly no head, the body is black. The taste is sweet and a little bit strange, hard to define. The body is light to medium strong, a little bit creamy with a lively carbonation.

Dark, looks like a Guinness. Sweet aroma, buttery. Taste is also dominated by a sweet butteryness and a touch of smoke. Maybe some vanilla.
