Bottle in Spar in Fuerteventura, Spain. Caramel body. Sweet, corny nose. Taste is a bit malty and medicinal up front. Smoothens out a bit. Lots of licorice in there. Not a great beer, in my opinion. Was hoping more for my only non Lager this week...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Some Ovaltine malt drink at first, hazel nut, sweet, malty bread, a little burnt molasses.
Palate: Sweet but not cloying.
Flavor: Nutty, sweet, malty bread, molasses, yeast. Finishes a bit drier than it starts with bitter cocoa, molasses and slightly burnt coffee.
Comment: Better than I expected. For me it’s best drunk cold so as to keep the sweetness in check. I liked the evolution of sweet attack to a less sweet finish.
