Dark brown coloured body with a tan head and a bunch of bubbles. Bright aroma of roasted malt, pit fruits and a bit of earthiness. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour complete with coffee and nuts, tucked in with sugars and some mild hops. Aftertastes nice and complex - definitely a good beer. Overall, worth trying if you can find it!
