Pours black with a tanned creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and some tangyness I can’t put my finger on. Very enjoyable!

Oelbas (197) - DENMARK - NOV 20, 2014
Klar men kulsort med et stort holdbart skum. Duft præget af anis og mørk malt. Smagen er blød med maltsødme, engelsk lakrids og en markant bitterhed, der forstærkes i eftersmagen. Meget vellykket stout i flot balance.
