Dark brown, clear, weak head.
Caramel and bready nose, some yeasty frutiness.
Sweet with light acidity.
Decent dark lager. BeardedAvenger (1279) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle from Inn At Home, Guildford. A dark coffee aroma with yeastie lager tones underneath. Dark and dkossy. Thick creamy off-white head. As per aroma, initially bitter with a shot of coffee. Then an almost synthetic sweetness comes through. Light-medium bodied. Thin but wuth some slickness. Average carb. An astringent edge to the finish. For me it's almost a coffee stout/lager hybrid. Too much of the latter. But better than expected. jonas (8281) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2017

Flaska drucken på Talita Kum, Beit Jala. Hade inte förväntat mig så mycket rostade smaker, känns inte så tysk kanske men ganska trevlig. Mörkt bröd, fudge, choklad i bra balans. En lätt brödkryddig beska. Ok. Theydon_Bois (21512) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2017
