Medium offwhite head. Clear deep dark brown body. Earthy caramel and toffee aroma with spicy linoleum notes. Sweet-dryish earthy caramelly taste with spicy toffee and marzipan notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly soy sauce and toffee aftertaste with chocolate, wax, and earth notes. Nice, drinkable, smooth. Perhaps a bit dense and sweet. Could use some more bitterness. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. 2011 vintage.)
