On tap at Rattle n Hum - East, pours an amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out very nicely toasted espresso beans, not much else. Flavour isn’t as nice as the aroma, with notes of espresso, light roast, and some burnt oats. Nicely constructed but a little too burnt. Solid.Flavour TBone (17566) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2017
