19-JUL-2013, bottle @appartment in Barcelona, from Alcampo.
Dark, dark brown with lasting, light brown head.
Aroma is roast and hops. Coffee and grape fruit. Taste the same with more caramel and nuts. I expected a schwarzbier but this is more brown ale like. Creamy with soft carbonation. Bitter finish.
Simple but delicious.
