3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color is almost black; very big head. Very light caramel aroma. Good body, chocolate flavor, missing bitterness (just a bit from some roasted malt); unfortunately the metallic finish is disturbing. An Abbey beer, on the simple side.
