Draft @ Oliver Twist, 30/3-14.
Dark brown with red tints, short creamy head that lace. Starts dry and bitter with citrus and pine, then comes a nice creamy maltiness with toffee, chocolate, nuts and some bread. Really nice body for its ABV.

Erasmus_ro (1376) - Alabama, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Tap @ Angleterre, Helsinki 30/08/14. Pours an auburnish dark brown with a good, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is citrusy, fruity. Taste is coffee, chocolate, decently roasted, some citrus. Feels like a black IPA in the bad way, rather than a hoppy brown. Too bad. Fairly light with slightly less than medium carbonation. Not pleasant.

Slightly eggy aroma. Slightly watery palate. Near-black, nice tight dark tan head. Nice roast, but a bit watery - feels diluted. Drinkable brew, but not particularly interesting at all.
