3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 7%. The aroma is refreshingly hoppy, has ashy notes as well as piney hop notes. Black colour, seems clear with a red shine. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is roasted with a hint of smoke. Quite roasted, has some barley bitterness. The bitterness is a little rough, but the piney hops seem to balance it off a bit.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
shared with bartlebier, Bierle and Oldmanriver. Unexpected, almost confusing passion-fruit-yoghurt-nose. Even more so the taste, which is passion-fruit-yoghurt eaten together with an espresso, quite a lovelessly combined dessert option imho. Fitting finish, with a lingering roast bitterness and a light sourness (yoghurt and espresso). A stout brewed/dryhopped with citra?

Bottle. Dark Brown, clear color, small head in my case. Aroma is full of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and sweet milk chocolate, great. Dry taste, with a nearly harsh bitter finish. Medium body, more flat carbonation. Aftertaste is first Form floral to resin, then roasty and somewhat ash and bitter in the end.
