Pours a dark hrown with a brown rim on top that leaves some lacing. Nose is of chocolate, coconut, vanilla and soy sauce. Taste is also showing clear signs of age with a lot of roasted malt and more soy sauce. Medium-full body, medium carbonation and a pretty smooth mouthfeel. A bit hot. Good but slowly dieing.

Butelka. Aromat mocno karmelowy, lekko mleczny, przypomina krówkę. Troche czekolady. Smak dosyć wytrawny, lekko słodki i gorzki. W smaku lekka paloność, czekolada, kakao.
