Deep brown body with a dense but short-lived tan head. Rich unsweetened chocolate and cocoa powder. Creamy and frothy carbonation with a soft, dry malt texture. Quenching acid, salivating and quenching. Light mustiness and some sourish and acidic burnt grains in the finish but it’s very enjoyable and suits the beers dryness and body.
