3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely dark colour with a slight hint and a little carbonation when pouring, rich chocolate roast aroma to go with it. The taste is very roasted and malty and leaves that as an aftertaste, slight hints of vanilla make it a sweet taste as well, if you can get this while itís available I canít recommend it enough.
