3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from home bought at Tanakaya. Dark brown black colour with small gold head. Aroma is vanilla, bit of chocolate, oats, lots of roast, touch of smoke. Taste is chocolatey, dry, little bit milky sweetness, touch of bitterness at the end. Maybe a little bit of caramel in there as well. Slight spritziness in texture which is surprisingly pleasant. Lots of roast. Very nice.

Tap at Q-brick.
Pitch black with no head. Rich chocolate and dark malt aroma. Well burnt flavor, with chocolate, a bit of dark fruit, wood, and smoke. Slightly spicy and tingly. Light body, with a good, bitter finish. Good stuff.
