COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My interpretation of an Irish stout, with an extra portion of choice barley, special and aromatic malts to give the beer its distinctive full-bodied flavor. A robust beer of deep, dark color with an aroma of roasted malt combined with the taste of sweet caramel, delicious dark chocolate notes and a hint of wild berries.

Sit back and enjoy a firework of flavors and aroma.

Yours,
Marc Goebel

Chocolate is strong on the aroma along with some roast malts. Flavor has chocolate on the front also, with some coffee/roasted notes. Easy to drink.

Pelzky (26) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Hazy, dark brown color. Tall, medium-lasting beige head. Quite impressive lacing. Aroma of malts, alcohol, caramel, hints of chocolate and dark fruits. Taste has similar notes, it’s quite sweet. Medium carbonation with nice, smooth mouthfeel. I’ve never been a big fan of bocks but this one is quite enjoyable.

mutz (612) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
Grote fles uit een getränkemarkt. Donkerbruin van kleur, crêmige kraag. Ruikt naar mokka, metaal, romig. Smaakt wat rokerig, koffie. De full body uit de beschrijving kan ik niet beamen, de afdronk trekt toch wat dunnetjes weg.
