500ml bottle shared at home. 408 of 501. Pours clear dark brown with a decent tan head. Aromas are mostly burnt malt, charcoal even, liqourice, faint hops. Taste has more bitterness with balancing burnt sugar sweetness. Hop character has gone down markedly since I tried it fresh. Still good though!
