Reddish brown transparent beer with no carbonation, a weak head and yeast flakes floating around.
The smell is bitter salty chocolate with some leather and metal.
Good sweet sour balance, fizzy warm beer with lots of chocolate and coffee and subtle fruitiness. The finish is dry and astringent with bitter grapefruit.
