The aroma here reminded me of that hospital alcohol wipe odor ... It is black. Bit smoky. Watery. Not unlike a sweet dunkle or a watery porter. Falls short of goodness.

Slightly lighter than the stout in color, but it has the same almost-black ruby. The head is different on this, though. INstead of the usual froth, it’s a dense, creamy head. Mellow maltiness is there. Malts linger on the back of the tongue. Faint twang that I was almost unsure that I tasted.
