Black color, with generous compact brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit ashy, and some cardboard. The mouthfeel is very smooth, it has a good body strength too; strong flavor of roasted malt, with a nice creamy touch, lactose, very light liquorice, light malt sourness; strong bitterness, also because of the black malts, but it seems that there is some good hop behind; the final is a bit too ashy for me.
Halfway between a Porter and a Stout (not chocolatey enough), but with bold character, and dynamic.
