This Beer pours a deep brown with amber tones and has a creamy two finger head, it leaves a good amount of sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is buttery roasted malt with a hint of chocolate. The taste varies from coffee to charcoal and chicory with a touch of chocolate in the finish and a hint of spice (pepper?). The mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy, it’s a medium bodied beer and somewhat dry by the end. This is an excellent example of the style its complex on the palate yet easy to drink and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

50 cl tap pour into a brand correct mug

A: Deep black with only the slightest tones of red around the edges. No head poured, but could be bartender error. No lace.

S: Big malt with a little alcohol. I enjoyed this in a cigar bar so some of the nuance may not have made it through the smell.

T: A little bland overall. Well rounded malt flavors give the impressions of smoke and umami.

M: Med carb, full body.

D: Extremely drinkable. Won't tire the palate. A good example of the style.

This was my first experience with this style and I am not sure how it stacks up against the others in this style. It is a dark ruby hue not quite as dark as a porter but in the same color range, good sized light sand or stone colored head with good lacing as it subsided. Its scent was mostly roasted and which carried over into its flavor there is some hops aroma. The taste here again as like a half breed as if I had left a pils and a porter alone in the refrigerator, lighter but still roasted and bitter sweet chocolate. overall a good drinkable beer. I hope to find some others in this style.
