A pitch black beer with a small brown head. The aroma is weird, sour, but sweet with notes of caramel and chocolate, but also some spice I can’t put a name on. The flavor is of milk and chocolate and the mouthfeel is quite dry.

Bottle at a grocery store in Dar es Salaam, brewed by Tanzania Breweries. Clear ruby brown, medium thick brown head. Aroma of shoe polish. Taste is watery milk chocolate, burnt carbon. Sort of not fair, because we shared a bottle of Crooked Line Labyrinth Black Ale just before trying this one. Different universe.
