Swing top bottle 500ml (BZ, BB 07/2012)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts and some kind of dusty tobacco. Medium-bodied. A bit dry, coffeish bock, some woody, cellary notes. Later when warms up, more sweet and caramelly. Oily palate. Quickly vanishing flavors, otherwise ok, so far the best Gessner I’ve had.
