Black color with small sized head. The hop aroma is fresh and very nice; it has a sweaty and resiny character; very light manure too; roasted malts are in the background. The mouthfeel is very smooth; it has an excellent dry coffee flavor, and the hop brings a pleasant fruity and resiny touch.
Very fresh and good beer.
Bottle from Systembolaget.
