Pours a brilliant hazelnut brown color with a big, froth, white head, which coats the glass the entire time.

Smells of toasted rustic bread, a lactic tartness and sweet toffee malts creating a nice harmony on the nose.

Drinks soft and light with a pleasantly effervescent finish.

Tastes of toasty malts from the very beginning with lots of accompanying whole grain bread crust and a subtle toffee note. Sweeter during the midpalate with a glazed caramel peak, toned down by earth, bakers chocolate and a whiff of leaves. Finishes chocolaty wirh a pleasant dry note, together with earthen malts and an aqueous softness, after the effervescence has left the palate.

Very nice, heavily relying on the malts, while producing a surprisongly unique, harmonious and intriguing flavor profile.
