Flaska till dricksglas. Kanske inbillning men ganska stor skillnad mot druaght versionen. Lite mesig eftersmak utan den riktiga beskan men G är G

MotherBrother (934) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2012
Pour dark brown, with a huge fizzy and slightly off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, slight burned sugar, slight chocolate and the faintest hints of spruce... Taste is slightly bitter. Medium body, with a rather fizzy carbonation.

thanatosti (1559) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Coop. Pours black with a huge tan head. Faint aroma of roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts en a hint of when you bite on the end of a pencil, a mix of wood and graphite, a bit ashlike. LIvely carbonation and a rather short aftertaste.

Bottle shared with McTapps. A bit watery but still coffe-like. Too much carbo but enjoable and recommendable.

McTapps (6630) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Quite airy texture of foam, not as creamy as known. Typical taste of coffee with a gentle bitterness, but all together very smoothy.
