0,5 l can. Pours dark brown, almost black with solid lasting light brown head. Aroma of bitter cocoa, light coffee and roasted malt. Body is light sweet, medium bitter. Body is light to medium, texture almost thin and carbonation average. Finish is medium bitter cocoa with more pronounced roast flavor. Smooth drinker.

From what I know to this beer: Too expensive, too overrated... why to give money on this, when you just can drink a quality imperial stout? I do not know this style but, from what I ve tried - I can only say - too much water. I need more, just more in it, more from what that is started there.
