Bottled (from AbM). Very deep brown opaque colour, close to black, with a mediumsized beige head that leaves some lace. Aroma is mild toasted notes, sweet rye, some more salty rye bready notes as well as some mild fruitiness. Flavour is rye bread, some toasted notes as well as mild floral notes. At first it was quite promising, but it turned out to not deliver what it gave hope for. Still a quite nice one. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2014
