Dark amber pour with a white head. Nose is somewhat tart. Toasted bread, caramel, and raisin. A bit papery, too. Flavors of bread, toast, caramel, and dark fruit. Paper, some raisin and toffee. Lightly tart and acidic, particularly on the finish.
A touch above average. Mild sweet caramel aroma. Dark brown color with a thin head. Medium weight with decent carbonation. Caramel malt with a hint of burnt sugar. Slight hop presence. OK I guess. rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2015
