Nose
Malty and smoky, with burnt grain at first, becoming chocolatey and nutty with developing caramel notes.
Palate
Sweetish and gently chocolatey, with bitter, nutty, roasted grain in the background, soft caramel and a little raisin.
Finish
Dry and coffeeish, with bitterness slowly picking up strength.
Comment
A tasty but very light-bodied beer, in line with its modest strength.
