3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
RB #999. From 25 cL bottle huge thanks to Grovlam. Pours dark/black with a creamy brown head. Liqourice and alcohol aroma. Flavour is chocolate, mild liqourice with an alcohol note. Clear alcohol presence. Dark and dry finish of alcohol, malt and liqourice. This is good, but no doubt that the Kaggen version is that bit closer to perfection.
