Bottle from Kihoskh.
Clear dark brown with a red hue and a 2 finger nicotine yellowed spongy head. I like the bottle artwork as well. :-)
Sweet malty caramel aroma with some chocolate and red berries, citrus, bread and a touch of leather.
Taste is sweet malty with lots of caramel that gets an extra boost of fatty chocolate. Grapefruit and red berries, herbs and nuts.
Medium to bigger body, soft carbonation, oily rich texture.
Pretty good, but it feels a bit worn out by age.
