Jet black, the merest tint of brown; rapidly diminishing brown head; chocolate malt aroma; high carbonation; spice initially, then bitter chocolate, toasted malt then back to spice again; a little sweet and quite bitter; smooth; the last quarter of this was very good indeed with quite a complex, warming, almost sherry-like finish; I admit to pigging out on a curry before this - I really should try again on a less uncomfortably full stomach.

Visibility zero. Dark and with light brown head. Caramel nose with lots of sweetness and almost dried fruit. Taste is fruity and slight dry although still with sweetness. Some coffee and cocoa to top it off. Very rich in regards of the low ABV and impressive. Lots of taste and hanging on in the palate as well. martjoobolut (5123) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2017
