50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a slowly diminishing tan head. Aroma is roasted maltwith a light coffee note. Flavour goes in the same direction with a nice acidic flavour from the the roasted malt and some coffee bitterness. Shows a light creamy feel. Light sweet molasses note too, yet subdued by the more dominant roaste malt note. Nice one.
