Pours black with a rich head. Lots of oak on the nose, also some licorice and paper. Flavour has some faint notes of licorice and coffee but those flavours are soon overrun by oak; loads of dry oak. Gets quite unpleasant after awhile.

Smells not too much, however, taste much but the aftertaste disappears quickly. Perfectly okay beer. I have one that I want to store some years now. But not completely stupid procedures were anyway. I would probably tell you. Not dry in taste either.
