Christian (11631) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Odense Beer & Ball Saturday - Real Madrid vs. Valladolid. Black with a lasting tan head. Citrus hoppy aroma with licorice, roasted malts and a hint of cinnamon. Sweetish malty flavour with toffe and licorice, citrus hops and a touch of alcohol. It’s pretty good, but definitely better without the dark malts
