Sparf (193) - Östersund, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2014
Tämligen svag doft av mjukt rostad malt och med toner av choklad och kaffe. Smaken domineras av kaffe och kakao. Även en mjuk malt, men utan sötma. Inte så stor kropp men med en trevligt torr avslutning. Helt svart öl med ett mockabeige skum.

Dark opaque black color, tiny beige head. Toasted, coffeish, ashy aroma. Medium-bodied. Sticky palate. Flavor has tobacco ash, cold coffee and roasted malts. Some hops in the finish. Nice but perhaps a bit too ashy for my liking.
