3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright clear brown with orange highlights with a lofty tan head. Smells of toasted malt, dark bread, some caramel. Taste is quite roasty, earthy, mildly sweet with some licorice on the slightly dry aftertaste. This beer is super smooth with beautiful fine carbonation...perfect!! Body is light plus. Well the taste is interesting and pretty full while the body is superb.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, dark, almost black, nice head. Starts mild, modest malty-dry, not too roasty. More and more malty with hints of chocolate. Finish well balanced, quite drinkable. Nice!

33 cl. bottle @ home. Dark amber with an off-white head. Fruity aroma with some cinnamon(?). Earthly flavour with some smokey roasted malts. Quite unique taste, at least for me, and I tend to like it. Very interesting.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright ruby red beer with a huge creamy head. Smells malty sweet, slightly earthy in the background. Starts pronounced malty, slightly roasty, pleasantly sour in the background, which is perfectly complemented with the yeast. The finish shows very roasted malty, full-bodied, slightly bitter, with a subtle smokiness.
