YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Translucent mahogany with a minimally sized white head. Very nice aromatic notes consisting of malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, and a wee bit of roast. Light bodied and quite smooth. Absolutely delectable flavour. Malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, vanilla, and nutmeg combine to create an extremely satisfyingly smooth marzen with some hop present during the finish.
