Idiosynkrasie (3804) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Roasty, burnt dark malty aroma, hints of coffee, old coffee, burnt coffee beans, a minimally smoky touch. Taste is roasty dark malty with subtle sweetness, hints of liquorice, some oxidised hop. Contains a lot of flavours one expects or hopes for in a porter, but in this case not in a tasty state.
