VRobertovich (37) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015

N3lson1 (352) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2015
Drank in a tall glass poured from a large bottle. Smell of deliciousness. Pours dark with little to no head. Barely tastes of oyster and delicious malts. A good brew!!

0,5 bottle. Pours dark brown colour with small beige, mostly diminishing head. Smooth aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate, malts. Flavour is light to medium sweet, some chocolate notes. Finish is dry and short. Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation. Nothing too exciting, but drinkable.

Tap @ Tennstopet. Faint sweetish aroma. Taste of brewed coffee and toffee. Quite rich flavor but not that complexed, dry aftertaste of mild bitterness and cherries.
