Black color; big frothy head. Some roasted malt aroma, paper. It has a well balanced flavor of caramel and chocolate and light roasted malt; fresh and refreshing. More balanced than the barrel version.

Cloudy dark brown color, no head. Some aroma, of glue, a bit alcoholic. Being without carbonation it can release a good chocolate flavor; there is some yeast too; but at the end it has some astringency.
