330ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of off-white head that retains well and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and earthy hops. Taste is roasty malted bitterness with some malty sweetness to balance things out and a mild earthy hop bitterness to round it out. Medium body and modest carbonation. A pretty tasty black lager which was definitely worth sampling.
