Taste: roasted sweet malt, nuts, fruity, medium bitter.

Bottle @home. Drk brown, almost black colour. Off-white head. Malty aroma with a slight acrid roasted note. Hints of chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is similar to aroma. Medium bodied with a full malty palate. Creamy vanilla from the Munich malt combined with roasted and toasted caramel and chocolate. Feel very much like a pale porter. The bitterness comes in the aftertaste to balance and give an impression of dryness. Very nice and drinkable beer, but maybe just a bit too roasted for the style.
