COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Clear amber. Weird sweet aroma with malt, cookies, fruits, a bit of graininess, alcohol, a bit of oxidation and somewhat strange I cant put my finger on. Sweet malty flavor with fruits, a bit of cardboard and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty un-enjoyable.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2012
13/02/2012 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Ambrata carica, lievemente torbida, schiuma biancastra con venature giallognole, abbastanza abbondante e persistente. Aroma intenso di frutti rossi, caramello, zucchero di canna, lieviti, spezie e alcol. In bocca dolce, leggermente stucchevole fin da subito, non perfettamente bilanciata e con un finale non proprio pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Si lascia bere, ma non niente di eccezionale.
