Size: 330mL
Alcohol Content: 6.0%
Sourced: 1st Choice Liquor, Naremburn, NSW, Australia

Notes: Chocolate and coffee notes, but with a strong alcohol flavour. A bit watery, was expecting a smoother finish. Very low carbonation, but you wouldn’t want more than a couple of them. Still, it’s a lovely beer.
