Has a giant beige head, while being brown-black color.

Burned malts, plums, chocolate, hints of bread and hazelnut define the aromas.

Rich roasted, earthy malts, plums, walnuts and hazelnuts, hints of chocolate, very complex beer. Malts turn sweeter, in a honeyed fashion, supported by chocolate and wood. Fitting carbonation helps the body from becoming too heavy - adds refreshment. Full-bodied, complex beer, pleasantly sweet with a unique character, turning into an earthy direction with hints of chocolate in it. Very smooth mouthfeel, a little oily. Warm, slightly bitter, coffeeish finish.
