3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
very dark beer which had a light tan head that never fully disappeared. Sticking my nose into the glass, the overwhelming aroma was Italian roasted coffee, which was complemented in the mouth by the gentlest chocolate flavour, which made the beer smooth in the mouth and satisfying.

Draft. A murky black beer with a huge lazing tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, roasted malt, as well as lighter notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, coffee, and roasted malt as well as light notes of chocolate, leading to a bitter and lightly roasted finish. The mouthfeel is sparkling.
