Bottle shared at The Wedding. Pours brown with a small, off-white head. Mild roast in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, modest roast and sugar. Body is a bit light and the carbonation is fine. Mild warmth to finish, semi-dry, faintly bitter, some roastiness. Just OK. faroeviking (11026) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - APR 10, 2011
