3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. The Ghost is dark amber to brownish in color with a nice and smooth creamy head, that is tan and long lasting. In the nose the aroma is dominated by dark malts with notes coffee and dark chocolate as well as some berries in the back. The flavor stays this with roasty and coffee notes. The taste is not sweet but dry and get bitter in the end. The finish therefore is pleasantly bitter while the medium body and carbonation contain all these aspects in a consistent fashion.
