Pours dark and heavy in the glass with a tan head. Full bodied flavors of cocoa and roasted grains and coffee flavors throughout the drink. Great overall.

anstei (1230) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 18, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. A dark and bitter one, yet not the ultra high cocoa type. Still some coffee and a little liquorice notes, with a decent sweetness as well without harming the beautiful bitterness which is present throughout. Light to medium body without sacrificing flavours or turning watery. Super smooth and pleasant to drink. Very, very close to beer heaven!
