Dark brown, seems clear. Offwhite head. Aroma starts off with chocolate and light licorice notes and then comes a lot of wood with light smoky notes. Good roasted flavour with hops, light licorice notes and wet wood. And I still get a light whiff of smoke. Smooth and very drinkable. Nice. fonefan (53055) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2015
