3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark garnet brown with a small brown head, fading and leaving good lace. Very shy aromas of burnt sugar, caramel. Medium body, lively carbonation at first, malty, cola, red fruits alternate on the palate with hints of licorice. Very low bitterness. Finishes on this cola note. Not a bad beer at all, very drinkable, but not something I would run for...anyway, I never run for a beer!
