Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Dark red-brown colour with a small-medium pillowy beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, bread, nuts, toast and light chocolate, earthy tones develop. Softly carbonated, round and smooth texture, medium-full bodied. Bready-toast malt sweetness up front for a good while leading into a light dry nut bitterness. Medium bit dry finish.

Fukito (897) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 19, 2015
Nice clear copper/ brown with some golde hues and a creamy medium lasting beige head. Aroma is nice nuttiness with some coffee notes. Flavor is creamy nuttiness with some light toffee/ caramel notes and a gentle bittersweet aftertaste, fantastic balance. Medium palate, rich and creamy yet still very drinkable. Overall very well rounded, enjoyable and tasty

jmohno (1238) - Iowa, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Pretty mahogany color, nice short head good lace. Nice aroma sweet pastry, dark fruit, raison bread?, vanilla,cherrie leather, nutty, caramel slight spice, chocolate, unique. Tastes picks up what aroma is, smooth creamy, soft malts complex and balanced, slight coffee/ cola. Pretty nice especially for a 5%er. This would be the beer to give someone who thinks they don’t like "dark" beer. I cant see anybody not likeing this.
