Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Daniel. Pours clear brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma holds burnt toast, some cocoa, earth. Light to medium sweet flavor with toasted cereal, slight toffee, cocoa, dried berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with some toasted sugars, bread, faint cocoa, cereal. Simple but tasty.

Bottle from Jill bought in Lidl. Deep brown with a fading off white head. Not much aroma. Roast malt initially with some coffee. Some slight metallic notes too. Light in body and semi refreshing. Not bad.

Skaniai atrodo, putele tirstolka ir laikosi. Skonis lengvas, kartokas, kartumas laikosi ilgai. Kiek gerenis nei vidutiniskas alus.

Poured from the bottle into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy brown-dark amber color with a slightly lighter amber hue and a good-sized foamy tan head with average retention, lighter cling and lacing. The aroma featured a blend of malty notes with chocolate, caramel, toffee, and a bit of earthy and grainy hops too. It was somewhat sweet with light notes of chocolate and toffee, but also had a grainy bitter effect. The body had average carbonation and thickness with a slight creamy feel and was a touch dry.

Black, medium white head. Lovely roasty-chocolatey aroma. Medium to light body, not too sweet, not too bitter, yet very flavourful at 5,2 ABV. Finishes roasty. Very good.
