The beers reviewed are rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 6 based on the following parameters:

  • Color
  • Consistency/texture
  • Fragrance
  • Elements of taste and aftertaste
  1. Disgusting (rather drink water)
  2. Poor/boring (somewhat drinkable, but nothing more than that)
  3. Ok (meets expectations)
  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)
  5. Splendid (top notch; a joy to consume every drop)
  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

imagePours big head. Smells of raisin and eastern spices, highly wine-like aroma. Lots of head. Taste: Outstandingly presence of coffee to begin with. chocolate in aboundance and a hint of vanilla. Which makes this perfect to accompany f.instance ice cream. The spicy features contributes to increased exitement and there is some bitterness to be detected also, far in the back. Unfortunately the beer was a bit too cold at the time of consumption, would’ve helped even more with lower temperature for the sweetness to be brought out.
