Red-amber; yellowish tinted head. Very iron-y nose, leaves, rust, galvanic. Chocolate in the taste, again iron, above sweet dark malts, a very little acidity and some unmalted grain. Good body, not heavy, iron changes the texture. Reamrkable beer, special character. But where are the hops - as it bears the coat-of-arms of a hopguild?
