Black, light brown foam, not bad.
Good but not too intense smell. Coffee, toasted, almond.
In the mouth a good toaste note, chocolate, some vanilla.
A good hoppiness, balancing the present sweetness.
Some artichoke and nut hints.
After a bit of warming, the flavours and aromas are more opened and intense. Good balance.
It remains a quite drinkable beer, despite its 7 ABV, and it structure.
