Gurthnar (2667) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Aroma metallic, lightstruck (whence the fuck? But here it is), light caramel malt and herbal nettle hoppiness. Conflicting. Clear amber-brown colour. Taste is initially watery, then astringency hits in, grainy, light simple caramel. Overall off and unpleasant. I do not like this.

Dark ruby red, mildly carbonated. Plenty of flavour and a fair bit of punch. Reminds me a bit of Hobgoblin.

worldbeertaste (1720) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Deep brown with a ruby tint and a disappearing tan head. Deep smell of malt and soft roast with black current, nut, dates and liquorice. Sweet toasts of malt fills the mouth with a berry black current, soft roast, caramel and woody centre and a grassy hop bitterness finish. Very nice and full of rich flavour.

This was a 500 ml. bottle and poured a red amber with a beige head. Nose of fruit and roasted malts. Medium in body and creamy in the mouth. Flavor is rich with fruit. The finish is bitter and flavorful. Nice in every way.
