The aroma is chocolate-ly with a very nice roast, also smell some coffee.
In a glass it’s dark-red with a bubbly head which vanishes quite quickly. Tastes smooth, slightly bitter with a roasted accent, coffee. It’s quite fizzy ad creamy, leaves a slight but nice acidic after-tast.

Bit better than average porter. Middling mouthfeel black. Good drinkability because of malt backbone.
