Bottle & Keg; Filtered & pasteurised.

Brewed with a combination of five different malts, some heavily roasted for a near jet black appearance, and beneath its dark exterior features luxurious red berry notes, toasty aromas on the nose and culminates in a dry, bitter finish.

500ml bottle from Stockmann, Espoo. Pours almost pitch black with a thick tan head that leaves lace on the glass. Roasty flavour with caramel and liquorice. Dry flavour with roasted, almost burnt malt, bitterness and liquorice. Dry, roasted finish with some hoppy bitterness.

Tastes like guiness. Maybe a bit more flavor bit only at the end. Nothing in the beginning nothing in the middle. Inky the end offers a light chocolate and bitter taste. Tap in Bath, England.

Bottle. One-finger coarse beige heads dissipates after a couple of minutes. One aroma group is sweet dark fruit like dates and cocoa powder. The other is a pleasant but acrid bitterness like old leather. Taste is primarily highly roasted malts, but complex. In the long finish some hop bittering comes through. Low carbonation is perfect - anything higher would push the acidity over the edge.

Ja, visst, hel del kaffe och mörk chockad. Känner inte den fylliga smaken som var utlovad.

TaxiDriver (1543) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. A malty aroma of coffee and roasted malt, later also sweet. The head is pale beige, foamy and with a normal size, the duration is also normal. A malty and light bitter taste, the finish is light medical. The body is medium strong, a little bit creamy and dry with a soft carbonation.
