Black with a medium, creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, wood and some light fruit. Similar taste. The finish was fairly bitter. A descent one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Monks Porterhouse, Stockholm. Dark brown, rich creamy head. Chocolate, earth and tobacco jumps at me, slight notes of green apples. Mid dry with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Bread, grass and coffee, but mostly earthy chocolate and leather. Mildly bitter finish. If it wasn’t for that tiny but persistent note of green apples, this would be absolutely fabulous.
