Draught. Dark brown colour. A flat head. Some hints of smoke and old boots and some soap in the nose. Anyway something is missing. Dissapointing beer.

couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Jet black, barely any caramel color, even at glass bottom. Wispy, poor head. Big coffee aroma, light noble aroma. Not quite thin body, light huskiness. Coffee flavors, quite balanced.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2008
Draught. Very dark ruby brown colour, very close to black. Aroma is yeast, hops, mild roasted malts as well as some chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet and mildly acidic fruityness along with roasted malts. As it warms up also some coffeeish and chocolateish notes become present in the flavour too. Nice, but still quite watery.

Mély sötét színű,világos barna habbal.Pörkölt kávés malátás illat és íz kesernyés utóízzel.Csapolva jobban ízlett de mindenhogy remek.
