axl (441) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
From 500ml bottle. Almost black with relatively rapidly fading cream head leaving no lacing. Descrete aroma of sweet black bread, syrup, some dark dried fruits and maybe some chocolate in the background. Taste dominated by roasted malts and black bread, almost no bitterness but good British malt character. Light creamy smooth mouthfeel with very low carbonation.
