Black coloured beer with a medium to huge beige head. Aroma is roasted malt with some coffee and leather notes. Flavor is toasted malt with some licorice, coffee and chocolate notes. Medium to heavy palate. Love this one. Moebbels (817) - FINLAND - OCT 2, 2017
A thick, viscous pitch black beer with no foam on top. Deep malty aroma with sweet chokolate, coffee, caramel, roasted barley and syrup. Sweet taste with chokolate on the upfront and a roasted coffee bitterness on the finish. Low carbonation and rich palate. Extremely nice, nuanced and well balanced dark beer.
