Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin wispy off-white head. Aroma of dark malts, mild burnt sugar, and a nice vanilla kick. Taste follows, but all pretty mild, if not a little thin on the mouth. Meh, not bad but nothing too exciting. fonefan (48740) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2016
