Tap @ Konttori.
Pours dark brown color with a thick beige head. Roasted malts and oat on the nose, subtle chocolaty notes, faint cocoa. Silky smooth, creamy palate, otay and malts on the taste, mellow fruit notes on the background, cocoa powder. Very pleasant, served too chilly though, makes this quite watery, gets better as it warms up.
