Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Small head with short duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are rich chocolate, rich nuts, rich coffee, rich malt and hops. Nice and pleasant with a, did I say rich taste? Idiosynkrasie (8325) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 30, 2013
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small to average, firm, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, ivory-coloured head. Minimally roasty dark malty aroma, notes of black bread, hints of caramel. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty, notes of treacle, black bread, hints of roast. Very complex for its low abv. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 15, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small head. Aroma is rather rich with roasted malts, espresso and unfortunately some weak vegetable-like notes - probably from the coffee. Flavour of roasted malts, coffee, grass and some mild sweetness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and thinnish mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
