3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Clear. LIght chocolate brown and dense head. Medium lasting. Is sweet and malty with some fruit accents and a light sourness. The sourness isn’t unpleasant, its just not what I expected. Is sweet and chocolatish in the end. Not the most exciting dunkel I’ve had.
