King_Alex_II (1146) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Black color with white foam ring. The smell is roasty with coffee notes. The taste is quite coffee heavy with a lively carbonation at first. Later the mouth feeling is all almost milky. The aftertaste is dry and a little roasty. The beer is quite light and refreshing for a black beer.
