Bottle courtesy of my parents. Pours a rather dark brown, a crimson hue, clear, under a medium to large beige white head. Big roast and cocoa on the nose, malt and sweetness, a touch papery like the other one from them. Medium-bodied, roast, a touch of sweetness, a bit empty and grainy, vague hints of chocolate. A bit of cocoa, nutty.

Nice deep red hue. Not much by way of aroma, a bit sweet. Not as bitter as I expected, which made me happy. Smoothe, a hint of mocha, I’d drink it again.
