on tap at zly casy in prague. very surprising just how dark this was - a heady shade of brown with a touch of purple about it; aroma was a mix of lacquered floorboards and chalky vanilla; some chewy malts and powder dry bitterness. not as assertive as other nomad offerings, might need another couple of samples before i really get into it

Clear very dark ruby brown colour. Huge creamy beige head. Aroma floral hoppy, some coffee, very light roasty. Taste is light heavy bitter coffee and hops, roasty tartness. Minor initial malty sweetness. Long bitter roasty, almost ashy finish. After a very long while the hops reveals itself in the finish. Good balance. Very nice beer.
