COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle to frozen mug in Chaostheorie Berlin. Big beige foam. A little old, some cardboard, old malt and a wee toasty in the nose, mild malty bitterness in the mouth. Medium body, mild bitter finish. Frozen ceramic mug didn’t do good to an old bottle to begin with.
