Bottle with Nick. Dark brown pour, tan head. Roasty malt nose, rich mocha. Light sweet flavor, great roasted malts, chocolate, dry coffee, light burnt wood. Medium bodied, chewy, with average carbonation. Roasty finish, mild brown sugar, tobacco and scorched malts. Earthy bitterness in the throat Extremely solid. Can’t really fault this. fiulijn (20370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
Black color, brown thin head. Light malt, roasted, cardboard. Weak in the front, getting more interesting later with a strong roasted malt, nutty, but nothing else. Too flat.

Taste comprises chocolate, light roast, light metallic notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast in a semi drying close with hoppy backnotes.
