Dark brown-black body, moderate sized pale khaki head, spotty lacing. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, and a bit of coffee. Flavor is nearly identical. A bit muted and lacking dynamics, but pleasant. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Thanks _angst_!

Draught @ Olutravintola Konttori
Great appearance with pitch black colour and thick, even head. Rather roasted aroma with coffee, burned sugar and some cocoa. Flavour is sweet and well roasted with syrup, burned sugar, semi-dark chocolate, cocoa and some coffee. The deep roastiness is nice here but the syrupy sweetness isn’t.
