UPDATED: APR 24, 2016 (33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours black but not overly thick, leaving a thin (3 mm) beige head. Aroma intensity is medium with a full coffee character. Hemp and a bit of that titled mocca. Mouthfeel is really thick with a medium flavour intensity. Chocolate, licorice, coffee but notably a well complementing earthen taste from the hops.
