Hand crafted and bottle conditioned from recipes designed for the Indian palate. Savour this world class beer!
Hand-Crafted using a blend of specialty roasted malt; Geist Dark is a hugely rich "black brew". It wears a rich creamy head and gives of a delicate sparkle. Full bodied and intense, Geist Dark evokes aroma of cocoa and coffee. Slightly fruity with a well rounded bitterness. Alcohol content 6.5% by volume.

Psytron (1787) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 21, 2013
Smell of roasted malt, mämmi. Very dark brown colour with beige head. Bitter with faint sweetness afterwards. Aroma of roasted malt, some cocoa and licorice. Lively and plentiful carbon. Rather fresh considering the darkness and alcohol content.
