Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber color, scant head. Aroma of caramel, subtle nut. Pretty plain caramel taste, very sweet. Sono daccordo con Lorenzo, it needs moore complexity.

Brandman (2927) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Very special vegetable aroma. Flavour is bit dark and crispy. Bit over tuned maltiness with some strange flavour - castagne?

Pours a murky amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, chestnut, spices. Flavour is much the same, subtle sweetness. Overall a bit on the thin side, but I enjoyed my bottle. Speaking of bottles, I really appreciate the presentation this brewery has chosen for its beers.
