3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 5.4%. Quite malty and slightly dusty aroma. Very dark brown colour, not really bernstein IMO. Big, frothy light brown head. The flavour is rather malty, roasted dark malts. Also has a little smoked horse flavour. Rather good combination. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Nothing exciting, but well-balanced and probably good for sessions.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly nutty aroma with slight dried fruit and slight currant. Also a slight spicy malt aroma. Clear red-brown with a lasting, eggshell-coloured foam. Relatively complex flavour that at first comes of smoky toffee; even bit peaty. Sweet dried fruit chase the peat smoke and give way to some hay and moderate bitterness. Slight chocolate note. Good balance. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, nearly crisp finish. Very interesting brew.
