The colour is deep brow-red, the liquid is clear. The beige head is two fingers high. It sinks quickly to a tin lid leaving very little lacing.
The smell is fresh and roasted, much drier than expected. Charcoal, coffee and some malt sourness. It is highly balanced.
The taste is sweet-bitter-sour. Some anonymous fruity flavours. Smooth roasted notes, hints of toffee and pomegranate. Medium body. The aftertaste got growing clean sweetness, not much of the thick lactose though. Back coffee and herbal bitter flavours. The finish is somewhat smoked, semi-sweet and a bit dry.
The carbonation is smooth, the many very small bubbles forms a foam in the mouth. The liquid is semi-smooth and a bit light.
A pleasant light black beer, but not the archetypical milk stout. Where are the cranberries?
