0,33 flaske fra det statlige helsekostutsalget i Verksgata, delt med Willy på brygga etter kveldns bad (12,4C): antydning til gusher, og vi måtte vente en stund før det høye skummet hadde lagt seg såpass at vi kunne begynne å nyte dette deilige dessertølet. Mild kaffe, dessertsjokolader, kakao, kanel, vanlije og rikelig med kokos. Nesten som en flytende Bounty-sjokolade. Flott munnfylde og mild bitterhet i den lange, sjokoladepregede ettersmaken. Skummet holdt følge helt til glasset var tømt. Men hvorfor i all verden skjemme helhetsinntyrkket med tåpelig tekst som "vågale, balanserte trendsettere som tar pulsen på det amerikanske craft beer markedet i små batcher"? I tillegg et rotete design i tillegg med alt for mange fonter og uklar informasjon. Hva er "naturlig sjokoladearoma, naturlig kokosnøttaroma"??

Black body with a large, frothy, very long-lived, medium brown head that leaves some lacing. Quite strong aroma of roasted malt and chocolate, with ash and rubber in the back. Strong flavour of roasted malt and chocolate, with dark caramel and rubber in the back. Light to moderate sweet initial taste with a long-lasting light bitter coconut finish. Mid-bodied, foamy texture, quite lively carbonation. A rather nice brew, too bad with the rubber.

[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2.5 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]
