thewolf (11261) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 5, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Etre Gourmet.
Pours deep deep chestnut, bordering on black with a firm, creamy, off-white head. Complex caramel malts aroma, light vinious, plums, a bit of coffee and liqourice. Medium carbonation, light grainy but lovely dryish and very creamy palate. Flavour has great milky chocolate, some hazelnuts, caramel, light toasted caramel, some mild coffee. A bit vinious and warming with a mild, but firm bitterness towards the end. Lovely.
