Cerebral Brewing Nordic Noir
Muted nose—rich toffee malt, hints of chocolate, black tea, shards of roast and paper with a woody border. Smooth flavor—flat wash of dark roast and caramel—with an almost creamy, fairly bitter finish. Notes of cedar and spice blend with dark malt. Warming. Rich and complex.
