500ml can into nonic pint. reads "30 04 15" on the bottom of the can, which i'm guessing is a best before date of april 30, 2015. enjoyed immensely on august 13, 2014
a: a very deep brown with dark ruby highlights, almost cola-like. almost two fingers of foamy tan head
s: chocolate and raisins up front. coffee, caramel, maybe cherries? some tobacco and smoke notes too
t: follows the nose. "rich, dark & complex" written on the can is a very accurate description. tons of chocolate up front, coffee afterwards, then toffee and the aforementioned dark fruit notes bring a mild but really pleasant sweetness. hints of syrup too? a delicious roast-char-smoke-tobacco character comes out towards the end. finishes with cocoa tastes and a drying coffee-like bitterness
m: creamy light to medium body. mild carbonation. nice!
o: one of my favourite beers ever. it's great that it's available and affordable too. a very wonderful low abv flavour bomb
