33cl bottle. Pours light cola brown with a thin creamy beige head. Aroma is light roasted malts, some coffee, some alcohol, light dark fruits. Taste is similar with a bit of sweetness before a good coffee kick and a light bitterness. Watery texture, medium body, medium carbonation. Mouthfeel a bit too thin for my taste but an overall good and well balanced beer.
