fiulijn (15365) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Dark brown color. Light aroma: roasted malt, coffee, caramel. Quite good body strength, with strong caramel flavor and some roasted malt, light liquorice and coffee, dry at the end and with some sourness from the roasted malt; unfortunately there is a wrong note at the end, something metallic maybe.
