Brown with off-white head. Lets just say that the label doesn’t lie: "Roasty malty bitter dark ale".

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2005
This is a beautiful very dark copper coloured beer with a big creamy head. The aroma is roasted, woody and maybe there is some coffee. The taste is tobacco and tar. The finish is dry, smokey and somewhat hoppy.

Amber with a brown head. Malty chocolate and licorice aroma with milky notes. Chocolate and tar flavor, some licorice, with a creamy feleing. Some salt is there as well, and the salt grows stronger in the finish along with some choclate. Much better than the stout.
