(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a very dark mahogany with a huge, creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Very full body, sweetish roasted malt with roasted, coffeeish accents and some chocolate. Light, bitter finish and very pleasant overall. Thanks heaps to Yogi_Beera and pivo for bringing this. 170406

Bottled, thanks Baggio! Near black, small head. Aoma of coffee with sugar. Sweet and nar full bodied and rather clean mouthfeel. Dominated by coffee, sugar and licorice. Nice, big flavours, but I prefer the lighter everyday beers from Great Lake.

Very dark red-brown beer. Opaque. Short lived deep tan head. Minerally dark malt nose. Softish palate, a little dry, but turns crisper. Smooth rich dark malt, well balanced chocolate and coffee. Very nice undertone of red fruits. Really good balance of flavours. Smooth and not bitter or over dry.
