Appearance- Poured from 500 ml into nonic pint glass, bottle production date 27.11.13 best before 27.11.14 so this bottle was made 8 months ago. Pours almost black with one fingered tan head that quickly dissipates. Didn't leave any lacing.

Smell- Chocolate malt.

Taste- Roasted coffee malt which quickly gives way to hops, a bit short but clean.

Mouthfeel- A bit thin on the palate.

Overall- A decent session beer, refreshing but nothing special.

The beer comes in a dark brown, almost black.

The aroma is light roasted malt, metallic notes.

The flavor follows with a light porter-like roasted malt. Then onto a hint of German spicy hops. A decent amount of metallic flavor and lack of mid and back palate.
