[email protected] Pours black with thick creamy and lazing tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, coffee and chocolate and some dried fruit and piney hops. Taste is quite dry with dark roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, notes of liquorice and dried fruit yet hoppy with grass, hay and pine. Finish is dry with long roasted aftertaste.

Turtles (2456) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
Keg @ Bishops Arms, Hornsgatan. Black with a small, firm and creamy tanned head, rich lacing. Big roasted barley aroma, coffee, molasses, dark chocolate and cherries. Soft carbonated, full bodied, chalky and mid-sweet mouthfeel. Hard roasted taste, roasted barley and coffee beans, rye, pumpernickel, licorice and some sweet molasses lifting that hard roasted taste. The alcohol is well hidden, the finish has a lovely chalky, dry-roasted bitterness that lingers. Just great!
