3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was a glass of Coke with a frothy white head and a slight haze. Oddly enough there is an aroma of cola nut along with cocoa in the aroma, some dusty grain silo and dark malt. The flavour is very much a manifestation of the aroma with some pecan nuttiness. This is the enduring flavour in the finish which is helped by persistent fine bubbles. A tasty drop.

Poured with a generous head. Big dark colour which looks impressive. However does hold up in the tasting. Little thin on the palate.

Draft at Libreria bar in Tirana
Dark brown scattered lace
Smells good and bready. The palate is sugary and the malts are underdeveloped and it soon becomes too sweet and cloying; the body can’t keep up with the sugars.

Mörk lager med tydlig kaffedoft. Inte min typ av mörk lager. Smakar kanske godare till kötträtter.

Pours a cola brown with aroma of a Heinekein dark hops. Taste is mildly sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste. Overall a slightly complex beer that has a Europeon taste.

0.5L bottle. Agree with description pretty much, it is not too sweet, good balance. Good appearance, taste and mouthfeel - typical of the style. I liked it a lot!
