UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Bottle, 35 cl. Pours deep brown with small brownish head that goes into some lacing. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, roasted meat, nuts, burnt sugar. Taste has some syrupy malty sweetness and medium bitter finish with very light salty feel. Alcohol is almost undetectable, maybe some little warming down the throat can be felt from sip to sip. Full body, bit oily, very enjoyable. Very good beer for colder evenings
