Very dark, roasted malty aroma with citrus notes. Taste is much closer to stout then to IPA, nuts, some coffee and almost no hop there.

W aromacie różowy grejpfrut, tropiki i dżem jagodowy. Barwa ciemnobrunatna, klarowne. Piana idealna. W smaku kawa, tropiki i szlachetne nuty alkoholowe. Goryczka niezła.
