Pours like an Irish coffee not much in the way of aroma tastes pleasant enough if a little unexciting digestive biscuit quote a dry short finish

Many thanks to my Secret Santa :). The nose is great burned bread. The beer starts intense smooth roasted. Dry, bitter chocolate, milky espresso. Great. A smooth bitterness comes in and let the beer become even more round and great. Very dry, liquorice without sweetness, roasted chocolate malt, moderate bitter. Great!!

Kauge (757) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2014
Tap at Veltins in Tbilisi, Georgia. Brownish black colour with a mahogany hue. Head thick and creamy, good retention and some lacing. Aroma is very nice: mildly roasty, with notes of red berries, nuts and black bread, slightly caramelly. Taste is similar with mild roastiness most present, balancing nicely with the sweeter tones of subtle red berries and nuts, and faint bitterness. Later on a tiny metallic tingle. Very smooth and soft on the palate. Carbonation present but rather discreet; body medium; finishes with a dryish ashy sensation. This is quality stuff. Never had it in bottle though.
