Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune. Dyprød/svart på farge. Veldig høyt kremaktig skum med litt farge. Sterk aroma med litt ristet malt & kaffe. Deilig på smak: Kaffe & ristet malt. Langvarig ettersmak i samme gate. Minner mye om en porter. Kanskje litt uvariert - men bevares: Denne kunne jeg ha drukket mye av. KI=2
