Mildly roasted malty aroma with spicy notes of liquorice, milk chocolate, leather and a pleasant background of flowery and subtle fruity aroma hops. Slightly bitter flavour, light to almost medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Discreetly roasted malt-character with present notes of chocolate and hints of leather; dry-ish mildly roasty and hop-bitter finish. Might be a good session-Stout. 16.III.12
