2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Black-colored, almost completely opaque, with a small, quickly-dissipating, beige to light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, some dark chocolate, coffee notes and some yeasty acidity, slightly vegetal and fruity. Sweetish-acidic flavor with yeast, some roastiness, some coffee and some "green" notes. Acidic-bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Feels pretty amateurish, maybe I should try it again in the future.
