Many thanks to beerhunter111 for this 33cl bottle. Best before 03.2015. Smooth-malty beginning. Nice roasted, smooth. Heavy roasted malt, slightly dry body. The aftertaste is smooth malty with hints of spicy peppers. A nice fitting combination, but I’m not unhappy that the chilies are only very few. Long malty and heavily roasted aftertaste with hints of the chilies.
