Bamsen78 (5170) - Snderborg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours nearly clear coffee brown with shades of ruby and with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of roast, malt and fruit, with notes of barrel and hints of yeast. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of coffee and malt, and touches of fruit and hops. Roasty, coffeelike aftertaste with mild acidic hints. Decent and easily drinkable, if a little watery.
