COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Clear dark brown beer, tidy cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Sweet malt, pinch of spice. Skewed coca cola with touches of paper and pepper. Dry finish. A bit weird but not awful.
