Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra harrisoni. Delt med Rune under avskjedsrating i H9 - 3 Des 13. Svart. Veldig høyt mokkafarget skum som varer i flere minutter - men blir helt borte. Litt lacing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice little 330ml bottle, vintage 2011, received as a beer gift from harrisoni, thanks. Good looking content. Devil-black body. Rocky, fawn-coloured head, slowly fading to a steady filmy layer. Spotty lacework. Ashy, dark malty nose. Flavours of chocolate powder, bit of oak vanilla, and dusty hops. Malt-fruity tail tingled with alcohol. Well bodied, still easy to approach. Nice and pleasing (shared with Finn as a part of our mass online tasting, Tromsø 03.12.2013).
