650 ml bottle, vintage 2015, shared by Sander, many thanks. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a tan colored head. Lots of coffee in the aroma in front of roasted malt - nothing stands out in particular, but overall very balanced. Medium-full to full body with a low carbonation, a medium sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. Some noticeable alcohol. Flavor of caramel and lots of coffee, some mildly burnt notes, licorice, nuts, hazelnut, some brown sugar. Lots of coffee on top of an exceptionally well balanced and smooth, roasty beer - very good!
