500ml bottle (Copenhagen) gift from Dr Space - thanks!
Sweet fruity caramelly malt aroma. Deep orange, small mouldy head. Pleasant carbonation, smooth palate. Very caramelly bias to the malt body, and sweet fruity hops. Finish tingles nicely with bitterness. Perhaps over-sweet, but not sickly. Some cocoa and other spices too in places. Covers the 5.7% easily. Very tasty new-world-hop reinterpretation of the dunkel style.
