4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark color. Made a three finger head with low retention.
Nice aroma of toasted malts and dark chocolate.
Flavor of toasted malts with coffee and caramel notes. Earthy/hay hops also emerges through its malt, and gets more and more present as it warms up.
Dry aftertaste, a bit oily and buttery.
Medium body and low carbonation.
Good beer, faithful to style and very pleasant to drink. A beer not for drinking a single bottle, once it has a good mix between drinkability and flavor.

500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a big khaki head that lasts. Decent lacing. Not much on the nose. Taste is dark malt, but not a strong flavor. creamy mouth feel, with a long, somewhat sweet finish. Not bad, but not great, either. A pleasant enough session beer.
