Bottle 75 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a nice tan head. Roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate and dark ripe fruits in aroma and something that could be described as herbal spicyness. Slightly burnt and roasted malty in taste. A bit thin perhaps. Semi-bitter chocolate in finish.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 tap@birrainbo sembra quasi nera. schiuma color cappuccino abbastanza persistente. nella aRoma malti e luppolo si accompagnano. profumi di caffè insieme a note citriche. nel sapore prevale luppolo sul tuo stato comunque amaro. stout estiva

Idiosynkrasie (3805) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
330ml bottle [4.3% abv]. Ruby red glowing, quasi black colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, a nuttily touch. Taste has minimally tart and minimally bitter, citrusy and grassy hoppy overtones, dry, roasty dark malty background, a nuttily touch. Nice hoppy Stout with resemblance to a Black IPA.
