Bottle. Pours dark brown with light reddish hue streaks and a creamy tanned head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, chocolate and caramel. The flavour is roasted malt, chocolate, nuts and caramel. Medium bodied and Iím getting some sourness towards the finish. Could be an old bottle which Iím more convinced as I drink this. Would like to try this again when fresh.

Cola brown pour with a light tan head. The bottle expired in 08 but it is really tasty. Mild malt aroma. Very smooth creamy mouthfeel. Nice malt flavor, everything melds together well. As the beer warms up(started at 45), the maltiness is more noticeable. Nice lacing on the glass.
