bottle pours almost black with tan head that becomes a thin film . aroma is mild notes of coffee , toasted malt , esters . taste reflects the aroma with toasted motes prominent . low carbonation gives a good mouthfeel . Alcohol level is managed well - long finish with lingering warmth in the throat

thx. to Kraddel for sharing // 33 cl. bottle split // black with a lovely mocha head, sinking away rather fast // smell is mocha ice cream, milk chocolate, creamy, vanilla blended with roast and reasonably meaty, gravy // taste is similar sweeter blend of mocha ice cream, some roast creeping up, malty, touches of dark chocolate, milk chocolate vanilla, meatier roast, gravy. // creamy, smooth // interesting, neat
