330ml bottle - shared by rosenberg - thanks
Nice soft cakey roast aroma, a little sharp too. Black, and a brief tan head. Stale stale stale coffee grounds in the taste - a really dark roast, but fortunately not ashy. Dry and a littly ashy in the finish. Biting bitter and burnt finish. Gone too much in the burnt direction for me, drinkability ruined. Don’t do that.
