It arrived in a tall lager style glass. A finger of head on a black body.
The smell has some roasted malt, though faint.
The taste is interesting with a peppercorn flavor, roasted malt and mild bitterness. A good profile.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A flavorful black lager.
