[Thanks to fiulijn]. Dark brown color, almost black, with a light tan head with good duration. Aroma has notes of light toffee, toasted malts, burnt sugar and some roasty notes. Flavor is slightly sweet, notes of molasses, good maltiness, toffee and chocolate notes. Subtle sweet notes in the final with some mild bittery traces, maintaining toasted notes. Creamy on palate with sweet mouthfeel.
