On tap at Craft Beer. Dark brown opaque beer with a short lived tan head. Rich toffee caramel malt. Trace of marmite like yeast. Sweeter malt in the undertone. Mild coffee bitterness. Finishes semi dry. A rich and tasty beer and much better than the bottle.

Dark brown color; creamy head. Strange aroma, meaty; chicken. Good body structure; caramel flavor, quite sweet, light chocolate; just light alcohol perception; reasonably interesting, if it was not for the aroma...
