4th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Opaque black beer - thick chocolate coloured foamy head. Dark malt and fruit on the nose. Super soft palate - a little dry. Rich sweet dark malt with a well integrated complex fruit array. A very sublte bubblegum tone. Finishes soft and dry and with very complex fruit coming through again. Very nice. cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2010

Intensiv schokoladenmalziger Beginn, Röstnoten sind in geringem Umfang vorhanden. Im Mittelteil werden diese stärker und wirken süßer, von den schokoladigen Zügen wird währenddessen nicht abgewichen, sie werden aber bitterer. Herrlich tiefmalzig und gleichzeitig weich, das Level der Aromen ist fantastisch. Sehr gut! 13/13/12/12//13
