Can shared at Berliner bash 2013, poured a dark brown color with aromas of roast, earth, and light coffee. Flavors follow suit, thin on the palate for me, nice beer overall.

33 cl can @ PBF VIII
Aroma has toasted notes, hay, some malt, chocolate and cocoa. Flavour has chocolate, cocoa and licorice. Watery and quite easy-going considering the ABV. But I seem to like this anyway.
