4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 50 cl from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.. Pours dark brown in color
with a frothy tan head. Roasted malts, cocoa powder, espresso and bitter
chocolate in aroma. Really nice so far. Smooth mouthfeel, extremeley nice
actually. There are some slightly burnt and light smoky tones linguering beneath
as well aromawise. Chocolate, smoked wooden notes, cocoa powder in taste. I’m
glad I got this one, as it seems to be a very well made IS with lots of great
aromas and flavors going on here. Longlasting roasted coffe and dark, bitter
chocolate in finish. Really good tasting brew with a bitterish suisse chocolatey finish.

Bottle - puts a deep black-brown clouded ale in the glass with a 2 finger tight pored tan cap - which laces up the glass sides.a aroma is somewhat understated for what awaits the palate. Big roasy flavour (coffee/coca) with complimentary bittering and s lovely mouthfeel/body from terrified grain. light smoke tones...long lush wet finish.
A great impy.
