Draught at Mikkeller Bangkok. Black colour with a small, neat brown head. The aroma is not excessive, there is chocolate and coffee with a hint of chilli and cognac, a little woody. The flavour is sweet with roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cognac, with a light chilli burn. A little smoky. Surprisingly balanced, a really good beer.
