Nice dark color with a nice head & a sweet aftertaste. Slightly bitter at first but that disappears quickly. Good with foods.

bunget (844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle. Beautiful brown body with some reddish nuances. Good mocha head with small bubbles, good retention and some watery lacing. Aroma is like a real desert: lots of caramel, licorice, good coffee, rye bread, hops, smoked prunes...wonderful. First thing that kicks in with the sip, is the dry mouth feel, then some caramel, which so unusual, a non-sweet caramel. After that comes the malt and hops bitterness, the coffee, and the sparkling mineral water taste. What’s even more shocking, all this flavor at only 3.8% ABV. Truly wonderful. Want to try it on tap.

Bottle. Clear, dark garnet color with a creamy ivory head. Warn toasty aroma with tea and caramel notes. Somkey and roasty with a brown sugar note (without the sweetness). A very nice schwarzbier. Roasted dry finish.
