Backlog from last summer. Pours with a deep brown hued body and a large tan head. Aromas are great. Saw dust, chalky, nutty, cocoa on the nose. Dark fruits, iodine, rich chocolate. Flavors are raisiny, malty, toasty, nutty, leather, light melanoidin. Medium low bitterness. Very dry finish despite the malt. Fuller carbonation. baraciisch (3165) - California, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Dark brown in color... Nutty aroma... Flavor is caramel, nutty malts, hints of chocolate, coffee... Kind of watery, but fairly easy to drink... Decent
