Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal, aug-15: brunsvart med fint beige skum som varer. Under dette finner jeg mørk kaffe, sjokolade, mørke maltsorter og brent sukker, litt kaffesyrlighet. Tørr, god og lettdrikkelig uten at jeg blir direkte lyrisk. En kompetent øl med mye smak for bare 4,9%. gunnar (9229) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
