bottle... dark brown, medium tan head, very thin ring... Danish char aroma, bitter, a bit of light chocolate, ok but a bit one noted... the taste is better, charred but not as much a bit thin, but really easy to drink, as it warms the char dies, some nice molasses comes through... pretty solid

Bottle - thanks to bigmmartin. Inky black pour with a modest ring of creamy brown head. Nose is mild, bittersweet cocoa and hops. The floral and earthy hops presence come out more in the taste, along with baker’s cocoa and roast. It has a sharpness to it, but drinks well... very well.
