The colour is warm dark brown (70 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is beige; it sinks slowly to a thick lid leaving lots of thick lacing.

The smell lacks sweetness, instead, there are roasted/burned notes of charcoal, black olives and dried fruits. Smoked hints in the background. It is rather light.

The taste is dry with roasted and burned notes. Some dried fruits, passing clean bitterness, liquorice and tangerines. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is a tad sweeter with matured red dried fruits and berries. The finish is roasted with sweet raspberry-flavoured toffee in the background.

The carbonation is medium strong; the mid-sized bubbles are fresh. The liquid is light but not watery.

A very interesting black ale with booth balance and unexpected flavours. I enjoyed it.
